Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film House of Cards

At first, I found it engaging as Frank's Iago-like breaking of the4thwall moments even tho it became a plodding cautionary tale (with unmissable performances) but then with the arrival of the Trump Administration this became very weird with moments mirroring reality becoming hypnotic and cringe worthy and now in a post-Weinstein world of men behaving badly I Find the show making us feel even more complicit.
