Mosaic

Critics Consensus

Mosaic​ has enough moving parts -- and fine performances -- to deliver a gratifying murder-mystery plot, though its jumbled structure and heavy-handed narrative may still leave viewers slightly wanting.

Audience Reviews for Mosaic: Season 1

    Excellent cast, especially Sharon Stone. The first 4 episodes were suspenseful, developed the characters and set the tone for which should have been a riveting investigation of who actually killed Olivia and why. Instead the series goes over a cliff of implausible scenarios leading to a confusing ending that satisfies no one.

    The biggest trick that Soderbergh pulls off is how smoothly the casting and the tone shifts, you will be amazed how this goes, more than where this goes. Mosaic Soderbergh is always the man for the thriller. And breaking that image of his, in this mini-series, the thrills rely more upon drama and the horror.. well, on short supply. The director, Steven Soderbergh collaborating with the writer Ed Solomon, almost looks like a match made in heaven. The absurdity of the world that Solomon is famous for creating, Soderbergh with his authenticity labels this storyline with enough credibility to grab your attention. Another endorsement of the series which lured me in, was through this bizarre setting of this case that allows you, the audience, to interact and solve on your own. Something that Black Mirror, infamously tried later on too, and not to mention failed miserably. But the difference between Bandersnatch and this Soderbergh product, is that latter one is infused on telling the story first, rather than handing over the stick to its viewers. And despite of constraining themselves to not fall for the commercial aspect, as Black Mirror did, the series still lacks the communication to build any possible hype. Also, It lacks the romance between the characters for us to care about. And as a result, this creates an outreaching physical distance where even someone as skilful as Soderbergh too feels incompetent and helpless, on serving the purpose. The crowdedness in the screen makes the filling of the gap in the narration easily. It is also difficult to cope up, on separating their individuality but if got hold of them, the narration grows complex and easy at the same time. Soderbergh, an expert in exploring such a theme, coming from Traffic and Ocean's Trilogy, this is like a piece of cake for him. It's a pseudo reaction that only he gets to enjoy it and we, as an audience, just teased or tortured- choose your preference- in this Mosaic structure crime drama, breaking the fourth wall and re-building the crucial first three.

    GIMMICKY. POOR STORY LINE. NO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT. I JUST WANTED IT TO END.

    If you like chewing food but not swallowing this is the one for you.

    sort of interesting, but very loose. I still wanted to know what happened....then the ending.... Don't waist 6 hour of your life on this.

    Please! Mosaic worked for me and as you can see the majority of people. I'm not critic, but I'm an avid viewer of all RT's over 60 crowd (the %, not the age). What I liked - the acting was really great. Stone, goes without saying, and her portrayal of a semi-sympathetic narcissist, was really good. Ferrin's steely performance impressed me to no end, and thoroughly believable as a smart and semi-accomplished woman with "issues". Hedlund, good, but... no spoiler, didn't convince. Cutting this short, my favorite was Retray. Man, give this guy more stuff to do! There were scenes where he made the whole 6 episodes worth coming back for. Needless to say...liked it and wished it went ONE MORE episode ...but then the 'wanting more' is probably why I enjoyed it
