  1. James Mackin's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Powerful and affecting, not my favourite show of the year. The music was a little on the nose, but otherwise, it's really quite good.

  2. CRW's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    Laughable liberal nonsense.

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

    Wow. Everything about this is so fucking beautifully done. Acting is so real, generally the whole concept is done strikingly pure. Plot is well connected and fluent, even when it's processing slowly. You want to know more and as you do, you get more disturbed and more disturbed. It is so strange also feels familiar at some points. Makes you question not just what is happening around you but also those humanly things.

  4. franziska's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    mega silly mood na pior paleta de cores de sempre

  5. Chenny Aviana's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

  6. Eleanor Abernathy's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    I really liked this adaptation. Some of the added material makes the story but some of it just hits you over the head without any subtlety.

  7. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    When you populate a TV show with cardboard characters, you get righteous indignation. This is fear-mongering. You just change it from women's rights to guns, and you got an ad for the NRA.

  8. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    what we have here is sheer horror in its atmosphere and the creation of subtlelty tension through storytelling and those eyes of pure dread. an absurdist extrapolation of reality that feels as real and possible and quite palpable in this day and age. martyrdom through a relentless feminist gaze. forget the clows, mutants, hauntings. this is HORROR and it does not need a buildup to a scare vignette. genious work!

  9. Alexandra Mayboroda's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    everything that happens in 'the handmaid's tale' has already happened in the world

  10. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

    The episodes that focused on the dudes were duds, but by and large it was affecting and well-shot

  13. Mic-kosh-ka's rating of the film The Handmaid's Tale

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. mikemero@googlemail.com'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.

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. 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?

  23. 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
