    Yes. The juxtaposition of viewpoints is very thorough. Even the make up adheres to the subjective viewpoints (e.g. - most female characters tend to have quite red, fuller lips when seen from a male's viewpoint).

    I have to say though, I do not have high hopes for season 4. I felt that s3 had all the hallmarks of writer's grasping at plot straws tbh...

    Been massively enjoying Mindhunter as many of you here, I'm sure. Really checks all the boxes for me as far as the cinematography, acting, forensic / historical subject and of course Fincher's hyper-realist approach to CGI. Something like Zodiac: the show.

    Wormwood is extremely intriguing as well, and I thought the majority of Mr. Robot's third season was fantastic, particularly E03 centering on Tyrrel and that finale. Granted a few missteps in the name of marketing and Elliott is still irritating, but the convergence of side plots has been something special.

    Looking forward to trying Netflix's Dark soon.

    Watched the first season of Peaky Blinders, but it failed to grip me. I found it unconvincing, starting with the fact that a guy like Thomas Shelby wouldn't do due diligence on Grace - especially that he did some, but not enough. And that he'd let her in so easily. And that the wicked cop would propose to her one day and shoot her the next. It sure is an aesthetically pleasing show though - loved the suits especially and the music can't be beat.

    Have you tried the Swedish/Danish show "Bron/Broen"?
    It's honestly nothing like the shows you love, but I also love The Wire and Deadwood and like Game of Thrones and Orphan Black, and I liked Bron/Broen a lot.

    Has anyone seen First Reformed ? I very much enjoyed spying on Ethan Hawke going through his personal apocalypse.

    No, but he always checks me out when we run into each other in Cobble Hill. I am the only man there not wearing the Dad uniform.

    Did not like it at all. Apparently I'm the only one since all the critics seem to be in love. The ending was just so lame, it killed a fairly promising story line.

    I loved it.
    Usually I don't trust when every person/critic/newspaper/magazine/blog etc says "xxx's interpretation is incredible"... But -yes- "Joaquin Phoenix's interpretation is incredible".

    Joaquin Phoenix was remarkable, I wouldn't expect anything less from him, the music was good with the intense cellos trying to build the narrative,but I have issues with the plot development. It felt random and confusing, the links to Wayne's family I found them too far fetched. I wish the very last scene wasn't included. I'm glad (the obvious) plot twist happened because it explains that random scene with him making out with his neighbour.

    I'm still in two minds about the film, maybe I need to watch it again.

    its horrible, which just reenforced what i've always said, follow directors not actors. As much as I love River's brother, he was the worst he's been in a long time. And the director is an idiot. If u wanna see a class war movie w/ a sense of movement and filled w/ incredible metaphors and also not made by a fuckin idiot go see Parasite, i would estimate that its 1 squillion times better, thats a rough estimate , its probably higher.

    Good point about following directors and not actors. I disagree with Joaquin being bad in it, I just think it might seem as if he's decided to turn this role into his own artistic show reel. His dancing abilities are great though! I don't know much about Todd Phillips as a director, as I don't particularly enjoy the type of movies he's made (never watched nor planning to watch The Hangover or The Road Trip).

    Parasite sounds intriguing ! I will give it a go.

    My litmus test is if both A.O. Scott and Anthony Lane pan it, I will delegate it to the ranks of airplane movies. And mind you, A.O. Scott has turned populist years ago, but he positively destroyed it... So, I guess, you'll have to wait three months for my review :-)
