Critic Reviews for The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)

The Leftovers is so good at providing satisfaction in ambiguity, we don't actually want this to be explained any further.

It seems as thought Lindelof (and his collaborators) are sticking with wrapping up a show by focusing on characters over explanations, although who knows what might happen next week.

The stakes in the The Most Powerful Man, doesn't actually feel as high, even though the world's demise is at stake.

Black and white. Good and evil. Or, grey and more grey. These diametric motifs are hangings in Damon Lindelof land, a universe filled in with the lush, pontificating moral core of Lost, and the surreal, didactic journey of The Leftovers.

In truth, The Leftovers may be dense (and, at times, unintelligible), but it teaches us to connect more fully with our own feelings.

"The Most Powerful Man in the World" is, like its predecessors, at once surreal, hilarious, and devastating.

I guess I'm at a loss for words at this point because the ride is almost over. It's time for the show to take over and drive the story home.

There's a whole lot of half-whimsical, half-convincing military-thriller business to enjoy here, as concocted by co-writers Lindelof and Nick Cuse.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Surreal, symbolic, silly, and sorrowful, this was yet another fantastic episode of The Leftovers. It keeps getting harder and harder to think about saying goodbye to this show next week.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

It was trippy, bloody, funny, and soul-crushing all at the same time.
