But falls flat. It's all style and no substance at all. I mean wall to wall shaky cam? Seriously is that sill bleeding edge? Extreme closeups that are out of focus? Shots that are under 2 seconds with shaky cuts? And a sound track that's 125 years wrong? We get it. Edgy. But that's only useful if the writing is interesting. It's not. The stories are ordinary and flat. The characters are 2 dimensional at best. Once you strip the flash and noise it could be a miniseries placed anywhere at any time about anyone doing anything. There just isn't anything unique about it. The dialog is weak and you're supposed to understand the Lizzie character is a misunderstood evil super genius. Doesn't anyone do a head check to see who's missing? Ever? Nope. Anyway nothing ever happens every scene is close up two people talking trivial nonsense to each other and there's almost no plot. After a decade of the awful 'Slow Burn' trope we'd think that would be so 10 minutes ago, but no it lives with extreme overkill shaky cam, flash cuts, and a soundtrack from he'll with Lizzie Borden.
