By far the most emotional episode in the show so far. Unpredictable, human, and it’s obvious that we’re getting closer to the inevitable end.
Season 3’s token Matt episode sees the character finally take a rest from his messiah Kevin rambling and also sees the development of yet another mysterious god figure in the series… and there’s sex.. lots of sex.
Kevin and Nora’s relationship takes a violent turn in this Melbourne based, beautifully crafted episode that’s packed with feeling and a supremely intense finale.
The third episode thrives on high-class performance and an introduction to a fascinating new character, but why oh why did Kevin Garvey Snr try to pick up that snake?
After a slightly unsatisfying first episode where we lost some major characters and took a Lindelof Lost-style leap into the future, episode 2 brings back that real Leftover’s vibe and character centred plot that we’ve come to love – all through the one and only Nora (Carrie Coon).
The Leftovers kicks off its long awaited third season with a feeling optimistic and wholesome family goodness, but soon takes some risky turns compared to the first two seasons. Everything is different this time around, especially the characters that we grew to love in the first two seasons.
So way back when Moon came out, I was excited about the talk of director Duncan Jones’s other project in the works: Mute, about a deaf bartender in a futuristic Blade Runneresque Berlin. Jones went on to make Source Code, a very decent sci-fi thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and then the over-the-top Hollywood adaptation of video game Warcraft. FINALLY, Jones has returned to his passion project Mute, and who better to kick off his dream project than Netflix.
I read somewhere that this is a bad version of Gone Girl. I don’t think that’s entirely accurate. Based on the popular Paula Hawkins book, and directed by Tate Taylor (The Help). The Girl on the Train is a decent psychological thriller with a few twists and turns; some of them predictable, and some of them not. The tension works well, but Emily Blunt. EMILY BLUNT. She is a force to be reckoned with.
