NOTicolas Cage can do anything cool, and that certainly applies to curse, as Netflix confirms History of profanity (starts Jan. 5), in which the Oscar-winning superstar hosts an investigation into our most beloved secular words. Cage’s participation is the culmination of executive producers Brien Meagher and Rhett Bachner’s comedic take on taboo English language terms, giving him just the right amount of educational seriousness and tongue-in-cheek humor. Charismatically demonstrating the vitality and power of naughty words, and flashing enough bravado to show he’s also into the fundamental procedural joke, he’s the number one fucking reason to watch this entertaining six-episode damn affair.
Those who are easily offended by such a vocabulary will certainly want to avoid this lesson on the tradition and the different meanings of profanity, which focuses each of its 20-minute segments on a single forbidden phrase. Understandably, the word ‘fuck’ is the first to come up, with Cage kicking off the series by reciting many famous movie lines that take full advantage of that infamously frowned upon four-letter word. Boasting a beautifully trimmed beard and designer costume, and set in a living room decorated with a large fireplace, built-in shelves and a leather armchair sandwiched between a stack of antique volumes and a cart of well-stocked drinks, Cage nods, the actor’s greatest tool is his imagination. But swearing is definitely up there. With swear words, we can cut, appease, delight, scare, insult and seduce. Of all the swear words in English, none is as malleable as “damn”. ”
With its light tone, generated by its witty commentaries and variously animated sequences, title cards and graphic timelines, History of profanity is energized by Cage’s consciously erudite schtick, but is largely dominated by speaking remarks from a collection of comedians – including Sarah Silverman, Nick Offerman, Nikki Glaser, London Hughes, Jim Jeffries, and Zainab Johnson – who are more than slightly familiar with this topic. With a joke that befits the effort, they do their best to dissect the many ways that ‘fuck’, ‘shit’, ‘bitch’, ‘pussy’, ‘cock’ and ‘whore’ are used in casual conversation. , in mixed enterprise, in their own routines and by culture in general. They are a generally pleasant group and able to succinctly define how the meaning of each of these words changes depending on the context of their use.
