Angela Burr: I was in Bagdad, in 2003. And I was, um, attached to the United Nations' Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission. Catchy title. We'd had reports of of an incident in Rayat, on the Iranian border, Kurdistan. And the satellites couldn't make anything of it, so, the head of stations sent me... That's not entirely true. I volunteered, actually. Mr Burr was absolutely furious when they found out. But you know, what's the point, otherwise? And, when we got there it was a sports day. Well, ...

The Night Manager

The Night Manager is a character driven mini-series adapted from the novel by John Le Carre, that swept away three Golden Globes on the acting category and was nominated for the best series too.

As much as simple the plot is, despite of its genre, it doesn't unnecessarily grows convoluted or even attempts to make impossible possible. And such simplistic reasons is why it connects with the audience instantly and stays true to its tone throughout the course of it.

The adapted screenplay by Farr is smart as it glorifies each little moments with equal dignity keeping the audience enchanted in its self-created tense bubble that doesn't pop but explodes. Addition to that, it not only is edited perfectly but each character's perspective is accounted in perfectly for it to justify the actions.

It is rich on technical aspects like sharp sound effects, stunning live locations, alluring costume design and metaphorical cinematography that seeks viewers' attention through it.

Beir; the director, is ahead of her game and the viewers, for her description of a sequence is not only electrifying but thought-provoking too; she is in your head from the start. The performance objective is the ace in the hole for the series, since the casting pays off more than well, as Hiddleston, Laurie and Colman have genuinely invested their heart into it.

Pragmatic conversations, three-dimensional characters, tense environment and stellar performances are the high points of this mini-series. Beir's world in here is bolder, faster and scarier than it may seem and no matter how many times the makers play their "close call" theme, it never gets old, it never gets dull.

The Night Manager isn't shady or twisted as one's usual spy thriller and is instead beautiful on visual aesthetics and neat on terms of projecting the questionable morality where "the dirty work" is left upto viewers' imagination; a slick move.

Episode 4

The flips, the cheats and the tricks, all coming at an intriguing and the most dramatic point that fuels in the entire episode with an exhilarating and euphoric energy that never fades away even at its lowest point which is when it spends its time setting the plots and characters.
