Critic reviews for Nothing Lasts Forever
The early scenes of this episode were really well-directed by James Wong, including some strong visual transitions that had us taking notice. Unfortunately, on a story level "Nothing Lasts Forever" came together only via some pretty clumsy moves.
Other than a commentary on our society's sick obsession with beauty, the episode effectively questions the choices we make in this one and only life we have.
It was such a gloppy and gross good time that it all wound up working.
This week's X-Files - the last before the season (and probably series) finale - is simultaneously what I love and loathe about this show...but the parts of the episode I loved, I truly adored.
