If only ...
I don't think I've ever watched a good cast work harder to make a bad script work. Which means the directing had to be good too. And, for the period, the production values are pretty high too. But the real candidate for lynching was the writer, not the bad guy in the movie.
I would have scored it lower but for the laughs I got out of the woefully bad dialog and virtually every cast member's heroic efforts to keep a straight face while delivering their bits. If you're a Gary Cooper fan, or just like to listen to Ruth Roman's sexy husky voice, the rest is worth a watch for just how funnily bad it is. Funnier than many an intentional western parody.
Some of the best dark humour it's ever been my privilege to watch
I've watched 7 of the 10 episodes of Patriot's first season so far (Oh God/Allah/Krishna/Odin/Whomever please let there be more seasons) and each one has delighted me even more than the last!
I thought Braindead was great last year, but this brilliantly sardonic dystopian tale is even better. Like Orwell's Brave New World, but with a much lighter touch, and no leaning on devices like allegory or speculation or exaggerated absurdity, Steve Conrad's master hand reflects our own goofy world back to us with such humour and humanity that I stand in awe of his achievement. Really.
I have been visiting IMDb daily for many years, but this is the first time anyone has moved me to actually write a review. Specfically, the video that Dennis prepares for his wife in Episode 7 is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I couldn't not write a review after being gifted with that.
I think the only previous time I have witnessed true art created for the television medium was when I watched Troy Kennedy-Martin's Edge of Darkness miniseries back in 1985. I thought at the time it was the television equivalent of Michelangelo's David. I was sure I would never see it's equal. Now I have.
