  3. Chichago_'s rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Dark and captivating. Great soundtrack and beautiful cinematography. I can't wait for the second season.

  4. Diogo Moreira's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    This is why feminism can't be ignored, banalized or underrated. Don't be mistaken because it is classified as a Sci-Fi, this is real life. We are living in 2017, but we all know that, unfortunately, it doesn't feel like it sometimes.

  5. Claudia Negrea's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

  6. Emma Ikikeiram's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Never imagined a tv-series could have such great effect on me - the injustice towards women feeling so real. The story together with cinematography, soundtrack etc. is in balance (never feels too much), and easily managed to keep my attention throughout. This really is a must see.

  7. Yumi Kaioh's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    After Mad Men I've been following Moss's steps and I found out how beautiful she can be. This tale is wonderful, I should read Atwood as soon as possible. Waiting to see what's coming next

  8. lostlevel's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    It's a brutal and raw world. Though it is the calculated precision and efficiency of the horrible system that makes it so unsettling yet plausible.

  9. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    I found it hard to reconcile Moss as "the fictional June/Offred" and Moss as "the real-life Scientologist". The cognitive dissonance caused by the sheer contradiction between the former as the "Church"'s defender/member and the latter as the persecuted, smart, independent woman trapped in Gilead completely sabotages the viewing experience. This unresolved tension will likely intensify in Season Two. Going clear...Not

  10. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Really wanted to go for 5 stars just because of the cinematography and Madeline Brewer, but I'm sure the second season will be even better.

  11. Dan's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Elizabeth Moss is a joy forever. All the directors, writers, editors, cinematographers and people at HULU that worked on this couldn't have known how entirely excellent this would've turned out. And it uses music - what a soundtrack! - to highlight irony, emotion and comedy better than just about anything out there. The entire thing leaves you more than a little shaken, right?

  12. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    On the importance of feminism. NOLITE TE BASTARDES CARBORUNDORUM. A raw and brilliant 10 hour Masterpiece, as red as blood, as cold as death. With a post-Trump world view, this nightmarish regime seems more real than ever. Watching The Handmaid's Tale you can practically smell and breathe the fear. Mind control, us and them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxXXrLaFLWo

  14. auloel's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

  15. Huey McEvoy's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    An extraordinary achievement in both narrative and (particularly) production design and cinematography. This is where long-form television comes into itself as a genuine revitalised artform - this is, to all intents and purposes, a 10-hour feature film. I'm starting to come around to the idea that books should never again be adapted for the cinema.

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    An outstanding achievement. I really hope they leave it as a stand-alone series as it is a fairly authentic adaptation of the dystopian novel. To me, this is what the art of story is all about - uncanny tales that compel a visceral response in the spectator, even if it is a discomfiting experience.

  17. Garçon Manqué's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum,bitchez"

  18. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Hulu couldn't have known when they green-lit this that, by the time it came out, the American left would think that even Mike fucking Pence would be a step in the right direction. It's awkward to start, but as the characters become characters and not merely political avatars, the intrigue deepens and it becomes, ya know, good television. A prophesy? It's more a cathartic pastime. But what does that say about 2017?

  19. Igor Ramos's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    One of the strongest first season I've seen. "The Handmaid's Tale" is staggeringly beautiful and hauntingly plausible, since some of the ordeals women are put through are happening nowadays in countries around the world. Mrs. Waterford and Aunt Lydia are both so hideous. Praise be the cinematography on this show... and just give Elisabeth Moss all the awards!

  22. Milly Hampton's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    found the use (and choice) of music in parts really... bad

  24. jxn's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale
