Critic reviews for The Myth Of Sisyphus
Yet it takes a great deal of skill for an actor to switch gears like that while maintaining consistency within the character. Wilson stealthily navigated the transition, adding sufficient confidence to courageous words, making them spark with life.
Fargo is so good it will make you forget your place in the spacetime continuum.
The episode's finest scene came with the showdown between Mike and the Kitchen brothers and Lou.
It's turning out to be hugely enjoyable, the characters are engaging, and while I still think I prefer the first season, I don't really have that much to complain about regarding this one. (And the soundtrack is inspired.)
