Like other absurd revisions of famous stories, such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter or Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Freud is arguably better the more it leans into its ridiculousness.
Such a wild departure from a more traditional biopic series might actually be appreciated if Freud didn't treat the cocaine-loving, free association-developing doctor as a mere bystander in all the murder and mayhem.
Weather the parts that are a slog - there are quite a few - and it will yield ambitious passages that strike a neat balance between diligent craftsmanship and flashy, old-fashioned dramatic swerves.
...Freud offers a powerfully imaginative vision of the dark and seductive side of psychoanalysis.
The result is a plot that struggles to define its line in the first episodes, which complicates a greater initial connection with the public. [Full Review in Spanish]
Unless you're in the mood for atmospheric, supernatural/psychological camp, I'd skip Freud...
A lysergic folk horror add-on that will piss purists off and delight weird fiction fans. [Full Review in Spanish]
Definitely give this one a shot. It's pretty weird but in a way that might work for you.
This show might have been able to succeed on its own terms as a camp curiosity if its creators had been willing or able to depict its characters' childhood traumas and neuroses.
Audience Reviews for Freud: Season 1
Mar 09, 2021Loved 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.
Jan 21, 2021I 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.
Sep 27, 2020O 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???"
Jun 30, 2020You'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.
Jun 16, 2020It'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.
May 16, 2020You 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.
May 14, 2020Some 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.
May 11, 2020Fictory *can* be interesting and entertaining, but this is not. It's not because it's Freud and there is too much context and real history around Freud to choregraph this dance that is portrayed as Freud. Its as if you imagined King Henry the eight attending a royal ball and dancing The Charleston. It just doesn't make sense - it wouldn't happen except in a fantastic or comedic world. Don't misunderstand me - I'm not saying the actors are bad - they are not. I'm not saying the stories aren't interesting... they somewhat are. I'm saying this is not Freud. Once you name a series Freud it should feel like Freud, not like Sherlock Holmes investigating occult like gruesome murders of children through hypnosis (which Freud eventually would walk away from) and tipping off police where to find the bodies. Had this series been names "Sherlock Holmes and the Seance at Vienna" - that would have been spot on.
