Very Good But The Spectre Of 2020 Feminism Is At Work In 1897
22 July 2020 | by iansyardSee all my reviews

I can't fault the writing, dialogue, delivery, production, sets, costumes and excellent acting by the three main leads - especially Daniel Bruhl brooding socially awkward genius psychiatrist. But I got to say what fell flat for me was the outburst speech at the criminal trial and the following feminist movement speech given to the two women at the home of the now annoying crusader PI Sara Howard. Not that there wasn't suffragettes at this period of history, of course there was, but given the smothering #METOO and Identity Politics of the last 5 years the industry is being dragged through, this just feels on the nose in it's delivery to bash the viewers over the head just how bad women had it more than a hundred years ago to the modern empowered women and all those loutish men denying women their civil rights. It's all blah blah blah. Hollywood and the BBC have destroyed the once great tv shows of Game of Thrones, Westworld, Altered Carbon, Doctor Who and Star Trek with this overblown nonsense and I just hope The Alienist isn't going the same way as well. Overall I recommend this episode as there's more than enough to grab your attention, but be warned - modern Hollywood attitudes are at play in 1897.
