All I can say is that the camera work is beautiful and artistic. For instance, you'll oftentimes have Elliot's head in the corner of a frame rather than just straight-on... as if to tempt the viewer to look around in the scenery... almost as a simple play off of Elliot's paranoia. Scalpel precision is used to capture delicate facial expressions, subtle eye movements, and collect every ounce of energy that the cast gives off.
I feel that I'm running myself ragged here, but I literally could go on-and-on about how many things I like about this show. Mr. Robot is a true 5 star show to me. Great cinematography, a stellar cast, and I can't get enough of it-- an instant classic.
So when I heard, Computer Security Expert Steve Gibson recommend the show on his Security Now Podcast. I decided to put my fear aside and check it out.
WOW, am I glad I did! Not only is it one of the best dramas on TV, but THEY GOT THE TECHNOLOGHY RIGHT!
One of the interesting twists is the view from inside a person who has mental health issues and how one might function. Don't let this deter you because this will probably will be one of the trippiest things you've ever seen. The dialogue of the inner thoughts is poignant, touching, revelatory and seems as if it must be written by someone with some sort of personal insight.
A group of world class hackers take down the New York (read: the world) banking system, represented by the mega corporation, Evil Corp. The Evil Corp logo is very similar to the Enron logo; among many cultural references which inform Mr Robot, there is an reference to Pulp Fiction, so be warned that there is violence in this take no prisoners (for long) story.
To use a well worn phrase, Mr Robot may be the best TV show you aren't watching. True that.
The acting seems convincing, esp. the main character Rami Malek.
He is obviously too much into his own head, and a drug user as well (Which is a dangerous combination for sure!).
The narrative is somewhat current, at least when you note the growing discontent of not just many in the US of A, but also the global Hoi polloi.
Seemingly, slowly awaking to many atrocities the "Have Not's" continue to feel subjected to, and/or opportunity & benefits their excluded from.
Inarguably there is a growing economic disparity that leaves our nation teetering on the edge of class war, and the precipice of revolution.
Or perhaps just a rogue group of disillusioned geeks/misfits, that are determined to make a difference in their own way.
Whatever, if your looking for entertainment around the office space, super detective, dooms day, or reality TV drama's, it can be that refreshing change you seek.
Please note that I have only watched a pilot and two episode's thus far, so we will see if it keeps me engaged.
I know i'm way behind in episodes but hey, Amazon did ask.
Hope u enjoy!
