Found myself kind of bored with this one unfortunately. Perhaps because of similar films I prefer. There are some great things, but it was outweighed by some lackluster parts for me.
This is one of the best miniseries I think I've ever seen. The Chernobyl disaster has always fascinated me. More in the idea of this abandoned area of the world than in the actual disaster, but I've always wanted to know more.
The series is pretty riveting and rather horrific because it actually happened and can happen again. That is where the real fear comes from; the fact it is grounded in reality.
A lot of people comment on…
Joaquin Phoenix is a legend! What an amazing performance. He and Todd Phillios put together one hell of a film. A character study of the descent into madness and giving into it. It was a wild ride.
Definitely go and see it for yourself. I was skeptical after reading a few reviews on here, but if Letterbox shows you anything it’s that there’s always a few people that hate a film.
