    ★★★★

    Beautiful, heartfelt, precise, and well-structured. Naturalistic and incisive writing.

    Reminded me so much of my own family and my grandfather.

    ★★★★

    Greek tragedy by way of Korean Hitchcock

    Cool to see how much stronger the storytelling is than Memories. Transcended a lot of the genre elements and tackling something more human and personal. I may still like Memories more for now but I think this is a more mature work

    The Outsider

    ★½

    Solid first couple episodes and then wow.

    Slow, boring, cliche. Imitates the visual style of prestige drama like True Detective but without the substance. This should’ve been a feature.

    A shame Ben Mendelsohn has nothing to work with for episodes on end.

    Bizarre writing and characterization all around although the acting was fine.

  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    On many levels pushing the lower limits of what it means to be mediocre
