Freud: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Freud

Critics Consensus

An enticing blend of horror and revisionist history, Freud slips too far into the absurd and loses sight of the fun.

    "Freud" is an intelligent and masterfully crafted piece of cinematic work. The historical elements were wisely used, providing a background to an exciting thriller with well balanced elements of horror. The direction, the acting, the production, the cinematography, the make up, the costume... All well thought out, nothing exaggerated, everything well measured... Darkness and light well balanced, Freuds theories shimmer from between the lines of the plot... Excellent! I binged watched it without a blink!!! Absolutely recommended.

    Como o pai da psicanálise recebe uma homenagem tão péssima? Essa série foi uma das piores que assisti, no começo parecia que ia ser uma bela história de Sigmund Freud mas logo depois a mistura com a ficção foi algo traumatizante, junto com sessão espírita, satanismo, pais pirados, tudo fica muito confuso, não conheço muito a história de Freud mas sei que isso estaria longe de algo da sua vida. Além de muitos assassinatos, sangue e morte algo que poderia ser comum em uma época antiga, o exagero junto com várias coisas que não se conectam na série deixa o legado de Freud para trás focando em temas diversos e estranhos invés do próprio citado. É arriscado misturar vários elementos em uma só série, creio que foi por isso que o roteiro, o sucesso, o prestígio da série 'Freud' falhou quem sabe um futuro filme que seja fiel a ele e toda sua trajetória.

    Reasonably well done. I'll likely watch the next season if/when available.

    Loved it, there's hundreds of Freud's biographies out there, but the story here had nothing to do with that, if you expect a Wikipedia entry to early Freud, just don't, this is a fiction by itself, and one I really enjoyed.

    I thought it would be a dramatization of Freud's early life. Instead, it is a supernatural view into his life before he became famous. It's a dark horror flick with Freud trying to figure things out while fighting off the stuffed shirt professors of the time. Of course, we get the usual pokes at the corruption of the upper classes back then... hindsight is 20/20, particularly if you judge the past with today's mores.

    O primeiro episódio é bom, você acha que vai ser uma série boa. Mas aí as coisas começam a ficar muito estranhas, muito fora do contexto e você fica meio que "MAS QUE MERDA É ESSA???"

    You'll love the series if you think of it as a supernatural - paranormal - mistery show . If you see it expecting a realistic Dr. Freud Biography you'll hate it.

    It's not the traditional historical biopic you expected at it first, but when you get into it, it draws you into its dark, weird world and keeps you watching exited and mystified. It has its unique storytelling.

    You can watch this one if you need to pass time, but it's not great. It'll do the trick, maybe only for a few episodes, but it's kind of difficult to truly get involved in/with (or at least that's my own experience). I will say that it was a solid season, but it's not particularly good at upping the engagement throughout the series. It's an emotional flatliner of sorts.

    Some reviewer describe this as like "Sherlock" and I decided to give it a try. Other than the drug addiction, there is almost no resemblance. If you like gothic vampire-type movies you might like Freud, but I was really sorry I kept with it when I watched episode 5, I should have stopped sooner. Its ridiculous, gory, smarmy, twisted. I want my time back.
