Crazy, immensely entertaining conspiracy thriller with a unique look, pitch-black humour and an amazing soundtrack
11 November 2014 | by (wherever good films play) – See all my reviews

I got interested in 'Utopia' when I read that David Fincher was going to direct an American version of this British show for HBO. While it certainly will be interesting to see what Fincher will come up with, I'm having a hard time imagining he could improve upon the original: it's absolutely perfect. The visual style of the show, the amazing, crazy soundtrack (which fits the crazy conspiracy story so well), the fantastic characters and the wonderful cast and the pitch-black humour – I could go on and on. It all comes together to create one of the most unique and most original TV shows I've seen in a long time.

The only thing I know that would be kind of comparable among the current shows is the equally fantastic 'Orphan Black' – but 'Utopia' is even crazier (and a LOT more violent), has much weirder characters and makes for a more cinematic experience due to its stylish, Technicolor drenched photography. The only downside to this show is that the finale of the second season sets the stage for a third season, which, sadly, won't happen (for reasons I do not comprehend, the show got cancelled). But nearly all the loose ends are tied up, and the two existing seasons of 'Utopia' make for a fantastic watch. Highly recommended: 9 stars out of 10.
