I'm finally fascinated with this prison break, three and a half years late
28 December 2018 | by handymandy78See all my reviews

I remember when these guys busted out of prison. It was national news for weeks, and I didn't understand why. Yeah, two dudes broke out of prison... yeah, they had help on the inside... the help on the inside was sleeping with one or both of them, which was kind of weird, but whatever. I just didn't get the non-stop coverage of it UNTIL NOW. Clearly all the reporters and national news outlets on the ground knew all the wild details, but it was too complex, and frankly, too raunchy, to report.

Patricia Arquette is a genius. Her voice, mannerisms, etc. make her unrecognizable in this role. Her transformation into Joyce Mitchell rivals Charlize Theron's portrayal of Aileen Wuornos in "Monster." Same with Eric Lange. I was like "oh wait! It's THAT guy?" You totally forget you're watching actors you've seen in other work. Benicio Del Toro is super creepy and Paul Dano is all grown up. The entire cast is brilliant.

I've checked reports about the true story, and so far (I'm 6 episodes in) it seems to be extremely accurate. I didn't expect this kind of drama and intrigue out of Ben Stiller, the director. He killed it. Just give the cast and crew all the awards right now. And yes, I mean all of them.

So yeah, I get the media frenzy now. I'm just a few years late to the party.
