Featured Review


Eric (Netflix) is a six episode miniseries that meanders into about twelve subplots. At times it seems as baffled as its protagonist Vincent Anderson (Benedict Cumberbatch), a master puppeteer who is searching for his nine year old son Edgar (Ivan Howe), who has vanished.

The basic plot should be compelling, but the writer Abi Morgan, director Lucy Forbes, and the three editors keep cutting to other subplots and prevent emotion from gaining any fruition. Their style is deflection.
