Such a rush!
12 July 2018 | by davidzoniSee all my reviews

It seemed as though this director had been chosen to rush the whole plot. A whole visual and artistic slow pace throughout the entire season flushed in an artificial and way too literal narrative. Lines were excesive and obvious. The tension that had been building up since the beginning faded into a brutal, forced and childlish missinterpretion. Hope S3 improves it.
