‘Rectify’ Series Finale Recap: A Perfect Farewell

14 December 2016 9:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen the series finale of Sundance’s “Rectify,” “All I’m Sayin’.”

“Because I know you.”

Hushed — that’s the word that kept coming to mind as I watched the series finale of “Rectify.” It’s always been a show with its very own quiet vibe; one of the things that makes it distinctive is a expertly calibrated tone that never goes too big or too broad. Even so, there was a special delicacy to this luminous and brilliant final installment. That last scene, in which Daniel fantasized about meeting Chloe and her baby in a field at sunset, had no dialogue. It didn’t need any. We knew what it meant for Daniel to raise his hopes and dreams that high. He was dreaming of a perfect moment, and even if he never got it, he had that dream.

The fact that he had the capacity to want it »

Rectify Series Finale Recap: The Trickier Cousin of Hope — Who Got Closure?

14 December 2016 8:51 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sundance’s Rectify came to a fitting, final close late Wednesday night, capping its four-season run with 110 minutes of what it has done best.

RelatedPerformer of the Week Honorable Mention: Aden Young

I am in no position to recount the entire, extended series finale, but I did want to offer the fine drama’s fans a place to weigh in on how it all ended, and the show’s legacy as a whole. There were, however, a few scenes I did want to single out, for affecting me in specific ways.

7 Reasons You Should Be Watching ‘Rectify’ Right Now — No More Excuses

12 December 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

SundanceTV’s first original series is coming to an end this Wednesday, and a nation mourns. Well, a nation of critics, to be specific. It seems like every critic in the world (or, almost every critic) has been backing Ray McKinnon’s meditative drama since the start, but the viewership has remained relatively small in comparison to its universal praise.

SundanceTV has done everything and then some to grow its viewership, but we’re guessing a few of you just haven’t gotten started yet. Well, now’s your chance. With the series finale set for Wednesday, December 14, now is the perfect time to start watching “Rectify.” Otherwise, it may just slip by you, and that’s simply not a route you want to take.

To help get you over the hump and start bingeing, IndieWire’s Very Good TV Podcast hosted a special episode dedicated to one of this decade’s best shows. »

Spectral Review

9 December 2016 1:31 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to their original television, Netflix is killing it. Whether it’s House of Cards or BoJack Horseman, the streaming site has continued to provide astounding, award-winning television on a near monthly basis. If only their original movies stood as high. While they’ve acquired some noteworthy features, including Beasts of No Nation and The Little Prince, the films they’ve produced themselves from the ground-up continuously fail to live up to their impeccable television standards. While it’s encouraging to see them venture into the sci-fi genre with Spectral, unfortunately, it doesn’t fare much better as it’s yet another rousing disappointment for the multi-platform company.

When a mysterious force kills some of the world’s most powerful soldiers, Dr. Clyne (James Badge Dale), who’s among the top in his field, is sent to Europe by the government in order to discover what the disturbance might be. »

Abigail Spencer Talks Timeless Reveals, Jon Hamm's Note About the '60s — Plus, Rectify's 'Very Emotional' Finish

4 December 2016 4:50 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Since late October, Abigail Spencer has been in that special “zone” actors rarely enter, where they’re starring in two series airing simultaneously. On NBC’s Timeless, she plays Lucy Preston, a history professor enlisted for a series of daring trips through time, while on Sundance’s Rectify, she plays Amantha, a onetime murder suspect’s sister, who’s been on a wild journey of her own.

With Timeless about to unspool its final two episodes of the fall (Mondays at 10/9c, before breaking until Jan. 16) and Rectify entering its final two weeks ever, TVLine spoke with Spencer about her very distinct, »

Ghostly Aliens Attack in First Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Spectral’

2 December 2016 1:26 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Once set to be a wide release this past summer from Universal, they handed over the supernatural war film Spectral to Netflix, who will drop it next week. Not one for extensive marketing campaigns, the company has now released the first trailer for the film which follows a group of soldiers who are defending a city from an otherworldly force.

While its different elements look familiar, seeing sci-fi mashed up with a Black Hawk Down-esque scenario may prove to be entertaining. Add in the talents of James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer, and Bruce Greenwood, and maybe this can be a respite from the fairly lackluster year of action cinema.

Directing by Nic Mathieu and also starring Max Martini, Clayne Crawford, Cory Hardict, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Jimmy Akingbola, Dylan Smith, Philip Bulcock, Royce Pierreson, Ursula Parker, and Mark O’Neal, check out the trailer below ahead of next week’s release. »

First Trailer for Netflix's Supernatural Sci-Fi Action-Thriller 'Spectral'

2 December 2016 1:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's no limit to how far they can spread..." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for the sci-fi action-thriller titled Spectral, described as "Ghostbusters meets Black Hawk Down." The plot is about a scientist who joins a Delta Forces unit that goes into a European city to investigate "mysterious phantom aggressors code-named Spectral". The cast includes Max Martini, Clayne Crawford, James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer and Bruce Greenwood. To top it off, this film has a score by Junkie Xl, weapons made by Weta Workshop, and VFX by Weta Digital. It seems odd that this is being dumped straight to Netflix, but even better because it means we all get to see it starting next week. This looks cool, I want to check it out. Here's the first official trailer for Nic Mathieu's Spectral, direct from Netflix's YouTube: When an otherworldly force wreaks havoc on a war-torn European city, »

Performer of the Week: Lauren Graham

26 November 2016 8:41 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Lauren Graham

The Show | Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

The Episode | “Fall” (Nov. 25, 2016)

The Performance | It’s not always easy to slip right back into an old TV role. (Just ask Kermit and Miss Piggy.) But nearly a decade after Gilmore Girls The Series ended, Graham picked up right where she left off as motor-mouthed innkeeper Lorelai Gilmore in Netflix’s revival. And in the fourth and final installment, “Fall,” Graham dug deep to tap into a rarely seen reservoir of emotion inside her character.

“Fall” began with Lorelai on a quest to follow Wild (the book, »

Fall TV Ranked Best to Worst: Updated Grades For ‘This Is Us,’ ‘Pitch’ and More

22 November 2016 11:06 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The world of television criticism can be as fun as it is daunting. With so many shows coming out every year, month, week, and sometimes each day, simply watching enough of a new series to adequately grade it is a full-time job; a job we’re very pleased to have, but one we do not take lightly. To that end, it’s time to dig into one of the trickiest TV groups to assess: broadcast’s new entries.

Not only are broadcast seasons typically longer than their peers on cable and streaming, but critics are often given just a pilot episode to view before reaching a verdict. So many of the Fall 2016 entries were graded off merely an hour or two for dramas, and less for many comedies. But now — two months past the first flood of fresh programming — we’ve got a better idea of what shows you need to be watching, »

Review: 'Rectify' catches up with Daniel's family in 'Yolk'

2 November 2016 8:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Rectify coming up just as soon as I go to the big flashlight store... One of the more striking moments in last week's season premiere was Daniel telling Chloe the artist that he didn't believe his new life in Nashville was real. In "Yolk" — an episode that takes place at roughly the same time as the premiere, only catching us up with the rest of the family back in Paulie — an anxious Janet tells Ted Sr. why she has to go visit Daniel: "I have to see him — make sure he's real." Like mother, like son. Rectify has always been smart about showing the ways that Daniel's return was as difficult for the family as it was for him. In theory, his exile from Georgia should reset them all to the pre-release status quo, but life's a lot more complicated than that, and "Yolk" derives much »

'Rectify': Inside the Compelling TV Drama's Swan Song

28 October 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

About a decade ago, actor Ray McKinnon became fascinated with several stories he'd seen about death-row inmates who had been freed because of DNA evidence. "I just started wondering what their lives must be like the first day they got out," he says. "And then I really thought: 'What's the second day like?'"

That question inspired Rectify, one of the most emotionally affecting dramas about the criminal justice system on TV. The series, which premiered in 2013, tells the story of Daniel Holden, a Georgia man convicted of rape and murder, »

‘Rectify’ Creator Ray McKinnon on Season 4’s Exciting Changes and Ending a Series That Doesn’t End

26 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Imagining an ending to “Rectify” may be one of the most difficult propositions for any TV fan, writer or creator. Instinctively, people want answers in finales (if not sooner). They want closure. They want satisfaction. But SundanceTV’s first wholly-owned original series has always been about the journey. After all, it started well after the event that changed the main character’s life. It’s about what comes next; what happens after; how life goes on, no matter what.

So how do you end a show like that?

“I found what I believed to be the most truthful stoppage of the story,” Ray McKinnon, the creator, director and executive producer of “Rectify” told IndieWire. “Because it’s going to continue to go on in some unseen way.”
