Critic reviews for Head
This would have been so much more interesting if it had unfolded just a little more organically, rather than the fits and starts of a typical Murphy joint.
Perhaps the worst part of this episode, and definitely one of the more deplorable aspects of this season in general, is the continued botching of their race material.
It never ceases to shock me how much this season has crammed into each episode, but I like it. Keep shocking me, show. Keep making me cry. Keep making me feel things in general. And above all else, keep giving us the gift of Angela Bassett.
This week's episode of American Horror Story: Coven steers the series into unexpected and retrospectively logical narrative and thematic directions.
