Critic reviews for Crazy Whitefella Thinking
This week's third episode was titled "Crazy Whitefella Thinking," but it could've also been called "The Book of Kevin Sr... Perhaps other characters will get their own gospels in the final five episodes, adding pages to Matt's new New Testament.
In Grace's narrative of her five kids wandering into the desert and dying after the Departure, The Leftovers found a horrible new permutation of an already horrific event whose possibilities, it might have seemed, the show had exhausted.
The last two episodes of "The Leftovers" have turned the spotlight on two unbelievable talents, but they've also dealt with extraordinary faith on each end of the spectrum: unflinching disbelief and resolute ideology.
Scott Glenn has always played the character beautifully, because he's a terrific actor. Somehow he's able to subtly modulate his trademark steely squint to play out an incredible range of emotions.
Whitefella may not have been the most exciting hour of television, but in true alignment with the show, it offers up a lot of weirdness and that is moving and human.
