Mosaic: Season 1 (2018)



Critic 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.

Set against the backdrop of a mountain resort town, MOSAIC follows popular children's book author and illustrator Olivia Lake (Sharon Stone), whose literary success makes her a local celebrity in the tight-knit community. At the annual fundraiser, where she is accompanied by trusted friend and confidante JC (Paul Reubens), she sets her sights on a handsome, young newcomer in town, aspiring graphic artist Joel Hurley (Garrett Hedlund). Encouraged by the doting and flirtatious Olivia, he accepts her offer for a place to stay and work, but the unexpected arrival of Joel's girlfriend, Laura (Maya Kazan), sends Olivia into a jealous tailspin. Olivia subsequently has a chance meeting with charming stranger Eric Neill (Frederick Weller), another new arrival in town, whose duplicitous intentions to sweep her off her feet for financial gain have an unexpected outcome. When Olivia disappears on New Year's Day, leaving behind a blood-soaked studio, MOSAIC becomes an intricate whodunit, and it is up to detective Nate Henry (Devin Ratray) and Eric's sister, Petra (Jennifer Ferrin), to unravel the mystery.

Fans of more traditional crime drama that ends wrapped in a bow may find themselves frustrated, as will fans of more traditional good writing and acting.

[Sharon] Stone doesn't make the character likeable exactly - Olivia is much too flawed for that - but she does make us care as the noose begins to tighten.

February 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Less a show than a television experience, it's brilliant and exasperating.

January 29, 2018 | Full Review…

It's never, ever sentimental -- the familiar Soderbergh sharpness is found throughout -- but director, writer, and performers all leave room for the little streaks of meanness, insecurity, fear, and compassion to emerge.

January 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It is about as heatless and heartless as a murder story could be-and there's no overcoming that on a phone or on a television.

It's by no means a complete waste of time. Just don't expect to quite get out of Mosaic what you put into it.
