When Apo and Langborne are photographed at the café, Apo is on the viewer's left; when the photos are reviewed later, he is to the viewer's right, putting the pictures 180 degrees out from the actual POV when they were taken. See more »


Richard Onslow Roper: See, children grow up thinking the adult world is ordered, rational, fit for purpose. It's crap. Becoming a man is realising, that it's all rotten. Realising how to celebrate that rottenness, that's freedom.

The Night Manager

The Night Manager is a character driven mini-series adapted from the novel by John Le Carre, that swept away three Golden Globes on the acting category and was nominated for the best series too.

As much as simple the plot is, despite of its genre, it doesn't unnecessarily grows convoluted or even attempts to make impossible possible. And such simplistic reasons is why it connects with the audience instantly and stays true to its tone throughout the course of it.

The adapted screenplay by Farr is smart as it glorifies each little moments with equal dignity keeping the audience enchanted in its self-created tense bubble that doesn't pop but explodes. Addition to that, it not only is edited perfectly but each character's perspective is accounted in perfectly for it to justify the actions.

It is rich on technical aspects like sharp sound effects, stunning live locations, alluring costume design and metaphorical cinematography that seeks viewers' attention through it.

Beir; the director, is ahead of her game and the viewers, for her description of a sequence is not only electrifying but thought-provoking too; she is in your head from the start. The performance objective is the ace in the hole for the series, since the casting pays off more than well, as Hiddleston, Laurie and Colman have genuinely invested their heart into it.

Pragmatic conversations, three-dimensional characters, tense environment and stellar performances are the high points of this mini-series. Beir's world in here is bolder, faster and scarier than it may seem and no matter how many times the makers play their "close call" theme, it never gets old, it never gets dull.

The Night Manager isn't shady or twisted as one's usual spy thriller and is instead beautiful on visual aesthetics and neat on terms of projecting the questionable morality where "the dirty work" is left upto viewers' imagination; a slick move.

Episode 3

The politics brews in slowly yet sensibly and the close calls depicted in here are not you normal ones, they are bold, unafraid to scare the bejesus out of the audience and as far as performance is concerned Hiddleston and Laurie are at their best.
