Lazy and unfunny. (Not altogether unlike this mini-review)
Amazing writing and fantastic delivery from Pike and O'Dowd.
Though there are 10 episodes in this character driven little gem of a show from Frears and Hornby, the total running time amounts to the length of a relatively short feature film (100 minutes). And had it been one, it would have been my second-favorite film of 2019.
(My rating is for the first season. The second one isn't as sharp and funny but I enjoyed it.)
The quintessential thriller, Fincher's masterwork hasn't been matched since. By not witnessing the murders, the audience retains the perspective of the protagonists. Like them, we experience only the aftermath of the gruesomeness while the real impact of the film comes from the menacing (and classically noir) mood of hostility and complete and utter despair, brilliantly supported by both style, plot and characterization, all crystalizing the bleak theme of a world in utter disrepair. Perfection.
