Mudbound review – powerful tale set in Jim Crow America has real sinew
What really lifts the heaviness of Mudbound’s story over the top is the excellence of its cast, starting with Mulligan, whose typical, distracting mannerisms are held in check. She plays Laura as a woman whose adaptability to farm life is more about survival instinct than enthusiasm: it’s a complex characterisation and probably her best work to date.
Mudbound review – thoroughly modern period drama
Using voiceover to move between six disparate perspectives and running at a chewy 2 hours and 15 minutes, it’s an ambitious attempt to create something novelistic. The shifting voices help to create interiority without relying on inelegant exposition, and allow Rees to refract broad themes like love, war, and racism through very specific points of view. In this sense, Mudbound is at once sweeping epic and granular character study.
The Senate is back from recess — and still at an impasse over stimulus
Dee Rees’s heartbreaking historical drama Mudbound takes its central motif from its name. Mud is literally everywhere, heavy mud from unending rain that clings to people’s skin and clothing and buildings and never seems to wash away.
Nyt Netflixissä: jättisummalla hankittu ja ylistystä kerännyt uutuuselokuva
Slightly tedious at the start, bit too long, but gets better towards the end – although there are far better films with much better performances on the subject of racial tensions of the past however: your are left under no illusion of the evil of some people and, if you live your life with your eyes and ears open, you will know that they still walk the streets today and probably in greater numbers.

Is The Last Thing He Wanted on Netflix worth your time?
This is a frustrating way to watch a movie. Especially when half the dialogue feels pulled directly from Didion herself and the other half from a high-school history text book. By the way, if you are unfamiliar with the political landscape of Central America in the 1980s, good luck.
Book Review: The Splendour Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore
It is instinctive to empathise with Laura, used to city life and modern conveniences, who follows her husband to what is little more than a shack in the middle of nowhere so that he can chase his dream of a country life. This is not just a clash between modernity and rough, gruelling labour but also of culture and of educational standards, and of the deeply ingrained racism which permeates this tale.
Is Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams the New Black Mirror?
In the early and mid-2000s, the episodic anthology series did not disappear completely — the second unsuccessful attempt to reboot The Twilight Zone briefly aired during this period. But the landscape was much more dominated by highly serialized dramas like The Sopranos, 24, Lost, and Breaking Bad, which more or less required viewers to watch every episode and season in chronological order.
