The final episode of the Stephen King mini-series Lisey's Story premiered on AppleTV+ last week. At the Lens, critic Andrew Wyatt digs into this unusual collaboration between the pop-horror master and acclaimed Chilean director Pablo Larraín:

"As he decisively demonstrated with Jackie, Larraín has a talent for intertwining the past and present to establish psychological and thematic contrasts, and thereby unearth a trembling emotional veracity. In Lisey’s Story, the filmmaker employs a similar approach for more plot-centered ends, flicking through Lisey’s jumbled catalog of memories as a means of untangling the mysteries left behind by her late husband."
