Stateless: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
Stateless

Critics Consensus

Stateless has great performances and good intentions, but its harrowing real-life tale is undermined by its underdeveloped characterization of the refugee experience.

Critic Reviews for Stateless Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (23)

It's a fascinating story and Strahovski, so persuasive as a conflicted wife in "The Handmaid's Tale," is phenomenal here.

Aug 17, 2020 | Full Review…

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

Jul 9, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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…

The Blanchett-driven series, dealing with the problems of the detention of refugees in Australia, and the statelessness of people driven from their homes by war and conflict certainly put our immigration system under fierce scrutiny...

Dec 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Stateless is a faceted exploration of a key issue of our time, and deeply affecting whenever Ameer's huge, pained eyes swim into view.

Nov 2, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Stateless is well-made with genuinely committed performances.

Nov 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The story of how Australia and how much of the world treats their refugees is the heart of the matter here.

Sep 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Stateless is one of those series where a viewer benefits by not knowing more than the bare necessities beforehand. It's a ride that should be taken while realizing that unpleasant things will go down, but the journey's still worth taking.

Aug 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Netflix's six-episode drama Stateless is worth a look, but it's an uneven, fictional take on a situation that only seems to worsen around the globe.

Aug 7, 2020 | Full Review…

Challenging immigration drama has violence, nudity.

Aug 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Stateless, of course, has its heart in the right place. But by diminishing the POC characters it's supposed to focus on, it sadly ends up robbing itself of an opportunity to be a show that is truly remarkable and also important.
