Here is a roundup of the films, music and shows that the Talenthouse Team enjoyed this week! From watching Jennifer Lawrence multi-task some crazy things in Mother!, to watching an amazing performance by The Academic, the Talenthouse team had a pretty crazy week filled with new Creative Invite launches. Take a look at what we were up to this week.

Curb Your Enthusiasm, Season 9 Premiere, Larry David
Curb is back and better than ever! I’m so happy that after a 6-year hiatus, the hilarious show is back for its 9th season. If you have never watched Curb, it’s never too late to binge this incredibly smart and funny show on HBO GO. It airs Sundays 10pm EST. Larry David and his cronies will have you laughing non-stop throughout the whole episode, with his incredibly awkward and “Larry David-like” situations he gets into on a daily basis.

"Bear Claws" by The Academic
Facebook’s live has a few second delay. That might be a pain in the butt if you’re trying to do things real-time, but if you know how to take advantage of it things can be awesome. The Academic created a first-of-its-kind Facebook Live performance of their latest single "Bear Claws", using the audio/video time lag to create a mesmerizing visual loop sampler.
This band puts the delay to excellent use; take a listen to this amazing song from the beginning and see how they did it:

Mother! by Darren Aronofsky
I finally got to see the movie Mother! last weakened and went in not really knowing what to expect. The lead characters were played by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem and they were both great but Jennifer definitely took the cake. She was a brilliant actress in this film. The film starts off pretty slow but then quickly starts to ramp up to the point of it actually being overwhelming. The film was odd to say the least, but it's the only film that has made me purposely feel frustrated, anxious and angry. With out going into too much detail, the film is a giant metaphor for many things but the biggest one was how mankind has treated the world and it's environment. This is a great film I think everyone should watch, just be prepared for some pretty graphic scenes and frustration. Have a look at the trailer, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
