Stateless: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Stateless

Critics Consensus

Stateless has great performances and good intentions, but falls short on its characterization of refugees and feels too neutral for such an inherently political story.

Critic Reviews for Stateless Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (13)

"Stateless" is consumed by an extraordinary exception instead of confronting the ongoing disenfranchisement toward displaced detainees.

Top Critic

The most frustrating issue here is one of narrative focus -- Stateless engages the refugee crises with some extremely tedious optics.

Jul 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A masterfully told, forcefully acted nightmare about life in a dirty, bureaucratically impacted limbo.

Jul 2, 2020 | Full Review…

There [is] no doubt that it is a gripping watch and a worthwhile effort... Whether audiences will effectively process the messages imparted behind the dual serving of celebrity tease and well-meaning white people angst is frustratingly unclear.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

There's a tinge of that sort of high-minded obviousness throughout "Stateless..." But there's also a current of humor in the depictions of bureaucratic and disciplinary madness, especially in the early episodes.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

The six episodes weave the stories together with a sure hand and a careful eye, avoiding all sorts of common traps.

Top Critic

Stateless is not a work of propaganda. It's a drama, and a fine one. The characters' evolution as they're exposed to the immigration center and trapped in webs of secretive contradictions that ruin careers and families produces irresistible story lines.

Jul 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Stateless has the pedigree and the performances to match its prestige drama ambitions.

Jul 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Stateless is revealing, but by the end, it seems to reveal more about its own limitations than the current state of Australian immigration.

Jul 8, 2020 | Full Review…

All of these pieces work together to create a series that is captivating, haunting, and timely.

Jul 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

We often are faced with the clinical approach to immigration but Stateless provides a human account to the failures of a system that rips families apart and takes away the freedoms and rights of people.

Jul 7, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The slow, measured plot development, uneven focus and inconsistent characterization make it less engaging on a narrative level, even as it provokes the requisite outrage and calls for change.
