I didn’t love this as much as Parasite or The Host, but it was really good (and disturbing). I love seeing the themes of disenfranchisement, family loyalty, class, and social hierarchies play out differently in each of these films. I also loved the subtle Hitchcock and even Lynch homages in this one—it’s enjoyable when a film references influences without hitting you over the head with it.
What surprised me about this is how seriously the writers/creators took the idea that women have the power to change history -- including in the wrong direction. Although I knew already who Phyllis Schlafly was, I didn't expect this to be a story about the United States writ large, and the rise of the Christian right, a story that is usually told solely about men. This is a story of how women shape politics -- both in beautiful, progressive, visionary ways, and in self-centered, narrow-minded ways. And how ambition can get in the way of good. Also the acting was amazing. And episode 7 is everything.
