Legion

Marvel's psychological thriller created by Noah Hawley is unearthly. But is that saying much? We have had such spooky stories told plenty of times before too. For instance, Bryan Fuller's Hannibal dealt with similar genre, but the narration was- in its own way- easily adaptive and linear enough to follow and root for.. well, something. And this is the double edged sword that the series is obliged to lift up every time it finds itself under any threat. Now, the con is of course, very little romance is left between the characters and the audience to be moved by any of the razzle dazzle that they go through. While the advantage, is catching us off guard. For the absurdity is celebrated by going so deep that viewers are left with nothing but ambiguity in their hands.

Is it an endorsement strategy or personal kinks? It definitely is passion. For nothing so detailed and glamorous can be projected on the screen without having utter confidence in your world. The filmmaking is far more superior than the writing itself. The choreography is so mesmerizing that if it lacks room or time or space, the creator starts breaking the rules and flaunt majestically- the action might remind you of Bryan Singer's version of X-Men; the puppeteering of the characters and splashy uses of their characteristics in narration.

But let's be honest, the series does coax and cajole on investing with equal sincerity to each element, which in return leads this bizarre train of events where characters both, physically and mentally travels in order to extract a piece of information that will lead us further, and actually them, backwards. In terms of performance, Aubrey Plaza is milking all she can- worried whether she will get a juicy role as such ever again- and comes out as the only host worth to be rooted for, among this Legion.

Chapter 02

Things are getting less and less clear and the writer's job is to peel out an engaging act within this ambiguous mission that they are trying to pull off. And as far as performance is concerned, the way it is executed, both repetition and different vantage point views through which it sees the world, the enactment of the fears casts quite an impact.
