A thrilling continuation of an already near perfect show, with more experimentation and more liberation on behalf of Esmail who was given the role of directing every episode. This season digs deeper into the characters surrounding Elliot and builds a world that is arguably the best grounded approach to a potential future yet to be captured on television. Once again highly recommend.
A revelatory viewing experience that I would recommend to all, for its precise stylistic approach, high concept made relatable and suspenseful engaging writing. But specifically for me as a creator seeking to establish my vision - this is proof that the when the world gives someone like Sam Esmail the chance to express themselves the best way they know how, they can make magic way beyond the restrictions of plain TV standards.
A show that I honestly first dismissed one episode in because of its slow nature and english speaking russians, it turned out to be one of the most incredible pieces of filmmaking I've experienced. An absolute masterpiece in its own right - through raw acting, stylized reality captured through the lense, and unbelievably written stories. A true example of how we can change the world through screens.
A terrific premise that should've carried a much stronger and deeper story. Potentially ruining the chance for other explorations of this matter, that could've been much more layered and grounded - with visual parallels from religious archives, more three dimensional character studies and a dark and stylized undertone.
An underwhelming follow up to a solid initial season, in trying to step up the complexity it somewhat lost its identity along the way. There's too much what (plots and subplots) and not enough who and why (character depth and connection). It does however provide enough entertainment in the twists to hold up as something to pass the time.
