Saw The First Episode at the Premiere
15 November 2018 | by julietkwanSee all my reviews

Just a while ago I finished the first episode at the world premiere of "Escape At Dannemora." It's very interesting. Ben Stiller does a really great job directing a serious drama with comedic effects about two inmates and a female prison guard. The episode I saw, which is a great introduction to the series, is beautifully shot and well acted, and well written. Patricia Arquette is really good in this, Benicio del Toro is such a great character and Paul Dano is such a fascinating character it's overwhelming of how damn good it is. It's an 8/10 because it has some pacing issues and makes the episode very centered on one character, which I guess is alright. I find it hard to believe that it is a 7-episode-series because it could be a feature film on its own, but it will be interesting to see where they go with this show and how they extend the story. I do also think the audio is a bit muffled and the pacing has problems, but the music is great and the whole feel of the show is just so good. I can't wait for the show to premiere and for people to really enjoy this.
