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!
On the other hand if your a super computer whiz hacker wannabe, or is I think there's a chance you might really like NMW. As for me, meh.
It also accurately depicts the experience of a high-functioning autist. People are baffling; every interaction is seen as a complicated dance of negotiations and (often hidden) expectations. And to the person you're speaking, they just wanted to say "how was your weekend?" So even though you realize you are ferociously intelligent compared to "the average," the mesh of interactions and connections that is "society" forces you to withdraw into your own private world (in your head, or in real life) and just do your own thing. "Society" seeks you out because they need your unique talents, but it's always a painful and confusing experience for the high-functioning autist.
Although I will say: I don't hallucinate. Dramatic license, and all that...
