Strange Angel could develop into an engrossing adventure... but it's too content early on to dwell on the mundane instead of truly embrace the strange.

Nice-looking production that needs -- please excuse the cheesy pun -- a lot more rocket fuel.

A reasonably engaging slow burn.

I can say that, on nothing more than an unfulfilled promise and a few well-performed weirdos, I'm sold enough to keep watching this genre-shifting historical fiction -- though I'm not devout enough to spill blood yet.

June 14, 2018 | Rating: 7.7/10 | Full Review…

Strange Angel is equally a biopic about a stubborn optimist and a commentary on the trying times in which he existed, and it's substantially more compelling when it's the latter.

June 15, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The opening episodes can get a bit plodding, mired in round after round of exposition and character development.
