Between Two Ferns: The Movie review – ramshackle cameo comedy

Zach Galifianakis’s abrasive celebrity talkshow gets transformed into a featherweight, intermittently funny, full-length feature for NetflixThere are saving graces scattered throughout Zach Galifianakis’s featherweight extension of his amateur talkshow Between Two Ferns, a ramshackle full-length excuse to watch him be mean to squirming in-on-the-joke A-listers. But perhaps the film’s overwhelming ace is an overarching awareness of just how pointless it really is, made with the same disposability with which it should be consumed.

Criminal review – like Line of Duty at its intense, interrogatory best

David Tennant gives his finest performance as a doctor suspected of murder in this fresh, thrilling crime drama set inside the interrogation room I yield to no one in my adoration of, and in times of particular strife, emotional dependence on Law & Order and its many offspring. I hold the increasingly baroque 20 seasons of L&O: Special Victims Unit in particularly high regard. Twenty seasons! The immutable Mariska Hargitay as detective Olivia Benson deserves a specially-minted award for managing to hold back both the forces of NY evil and time with equally relentless determination.But! There is no doubt that the police procedural is overdue a shakeup. And now it’s here, courtesy of George Kay and Jim Field Smith, who have created Criminal (Netflix). The former wrote and the latter directed these three self-contained episodes of a crime anthology series, each of which focuses entirely and intimately on a suspect’s interrogation. The camera moves between the interview room and the officers watching on the other side of a one-way mirror, and occasionally into a corridor beyond – but never strays beyond the police station. There are three more blocks of three stories set in France, Germany and Spain – written and directed by people from the relevant countries, adhering to the original template. Continue reading...

Unbelievable: the quiet power of Netflix's fact-based rape drama

The series, focused on two rape investigations - one gone awry, one dogged and empathetic - shows the refreshing power of depicting hard, sensitive workIn the second episode of the Netflix drama series Unbelievable, detective Karen Duvall, played by Merritt Wever, conducts what I imagine could be a high-budget training video for sexual assault investigators. Duvall finds the victim, a college student named Amber, processing in the stairwell of her apartment building in Golden, Colorado, one morning in 2011. Duvall already knows the outline of the crime – breaking and entering, a rape that lasted for hours – but she starts at the beginning, smoothly guiding Amber through an interview step by step, checking her comfort level with each question. Her voice is disarming and pillowy, couching sentences with “if it’s all right with you”, “if you’re comfortable” and “take your time”. Yet she builds a case, detail by detail. When she visits Amber at the hospital after her physical exam, she requests the nurse on duty to “ask her if she wants me to come in, but make it clear that if she doesn’t, that’s absolutely fine.” Then she immediately calls the station to block off conference room three for her investigation.
