Soderbergh is always the man for the thriller. And breaking that image of his, in this mini-series, the thrills rely more upon drama and the horror.. well, on short supply. The director, Steven Soderbergh collaborating with the writer Ed Solomon, almost looks like a match made in heaven. The absurdity of the world that Solomon is famous for creating, Soderbergh with his authenticity labels this storyline with enough credibility to grab your attention. Another endorsement of the series which lured me in, was through this bizarre setting of this case that allows you, the audience, to interact and solve on your own. Something that Black Mirror, infamously tried later on too, and not to mention failed miserably.

But the difference between Bandersnatch and this Soderbergh product, is that latter one is infused on telling the story first, rather than handing over the stick to its viewers. And despite of constraining themselves to not fall for the commercial aspect, as Black Mirror did, the series still lacks the communication to build any possible hype. Also, It lacks the romance between the characters for us to care about. And as a result, this creates an outreaching physical distance where even someone as skilful as Soderbergh too feels incompetent and helpless, on serving the purpose.

The crowdedness in the screen makes the filling of the gap in the narration easily. It is also difficult to cope up, on separating their individuality but if got hold of them, the narration grows complex and easy at the same time. Soderbergh, an expert in exploring such a theme, coming from Traffic and Ocean's Trilogy, this is like a piece of cake for him. It's a pseudo reaction that only he gets to enjoy it and we, as an audience, just teased or tortured- choose your preference- in this Mosaic structure crime drama, breaking the fourth wall and re-building the crucial first three.

Fact And Fiction

With unexpected outcomes flying about, the reaction isn't "Who would have seen that coming?" but, "Yeah, that makes sense." and in order to achieve so we can see how and why the writer compromised earlier in the plot, it was all leading to this, practically good, cinematically low on charge.
