OA Reviews

Netflix series, premiering Friday December 16th 2016. Jason plays Dr. Hunter (Hap), who researches near death experiences (NDE). I don't know how to explain this, watch it yourselves.

OA Reviews

Post by Helen8 » Fri Dec 16, 2016 12:41 pm

They're starting to come in—this from Time Magazine:

http://time.com/4604523/the-oa-review-netflix/

". . . imprisoned by a monstrous man (Jason Isaacs) who appears to have motives beyond sadism;"

"Marling and Isaacs are both strong, as is Emory Cohen . . . . The scenes in which she is acting with either actor are the series' best,"

Unfortunately, the subtitle of this review is "Strong performances by Brit Marling and Jason Isaacs get lost in an overly complicated mythology"

Sounds like shades of Awake - and a little of DIG. I can't wait to see it. I'm not afraid of a complicated plot!

Not really a review but a lot of spoilers

The reviews for season 2 is here:

Conversely, it’s Prairie’s relationship with Doctor Hap, played by the excellent Jason Isaacs, that provides the most fizz. Hap is a fascinating psychopath and a deliciously compelling foil with plenty more secrets and atrocities in his closet.
