Critic Reviews for Babylon Berlin: Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (1)

It's all wonderfully gripping, and Bruch has the most pained, expressive eyes you'll see all year.

The show is a fractured mirror in which it's possible to catch glimpses of ourselves. The image isn't flattering, but it's very much worth thinking and worrying about.

Babylon Berlin displays its big budget not only in its visuals, but in the skill of the filmmaking, with multiple sequences propelled by excellent intercutting and editing.

I couldn't get it out of my head for a day afterward. For TV that makes you uneasy and challenges your perception of good and evil, Babylon Berlin is for you.

A dazzling police and spy drama in pre-war Germany.

February 28, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The finale was so crazy and inventive and well-executed (that Rath/Wolter shootout in particular) that I stopped questioning any of it and just went along.
