Klart vi var peppade på nya FX/HBO Nordic-serien Trust – det är ju Danny Boyle! Och med Donald Sutherland, Brendan Fraser & Hilary Swank i bärande roller! Men den sjönk ner lite bland våra streaming-bokmärken när vi läste de amerikanska recensionerna.
»… recent years have shown that Americans don't have a lot of interest in one-percenter woes, particularly if said one-percenters aren't a likable or remotely relatable bunch to start with. And now the country is ruled by the Trump dynasty, which has taken empathy for powerful, rich idiots off the table.«
»…darts dreamily between past and present, when J. Paul Getty III is in real trouble right now. There are too many scenes that feel like Beaufoy inviting the audience to click on a Wikipedia hyperlink and go to read about something else, and by the time the main story is rejoined, all momentum has been squandered.«
»Boyle’s filmmaking finesse — which gives us a character breaking the fourth wall and some »Fargo«-like split-screen action — is matched by Donald Sutherland’s entrancing lead performance as the coldly indifferent and tightfisted J. Paul Getty.«
Trust har premiär på HBO Nordic i dag.
