Excellent series with great atmosphere and solid acting. I am not really sure that Roberts is the right actress for this role but she does a good job nevertheless. Cannavale is however great as a slimy government douche and Whigham as the dogged DoD clerk. Photo and editing is first class but the icing on the cake is the music. To hear Donaggio and Carpenter scores in a new setting is a real treat.
All aboard the Titanic Rising! Esmail continues his exploration of memory and fragmented minds. The extravagant aesthetics and aspect ratio shifts effectively match the heightened paranoia and sense of unease permeating throughout the series. There's both a Hitchcock-ian sense of play and the seriousness of the best '70s conspiracy thrillers, always stamped by Esmail's meticulously crafted filmmaking. It's unique TV.
Stephan James is amazing. I thought it was going to be all touchy-feely. Instead it's about how corporations and the government is evil. Which is true. Cannavale has a bit of a thankless role, but he's quite good. Though the drug was intended for the military, I can see civilians wanting to use it. They should have been up-front about it and used it to treat the vets that need it most.
This is a conspiracy thriller about the 'military-industrial complex' and their sinister & criminal scemes. The ten half-hour episodes keep you looped-in. This immediately reminded me of "Jacob's Ladder" (1990). Julia Roberts is doing great and also the rest of cast. 3,5 stars.
