Episode 1.3
19 November 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Chan-wook Park stages a wonderful period set piece of the red Mercedes making its way on a journey and then exploding. It underpins this episode.

It is all elaborately staged by Kurtz to blow up Salim and Anna who were responsible for the bombing in the start of the first episode.

Kurtz is hoping that Salim's death will flush out their real target. His older brother Khalil.

Becker is still unconvincing as he plans to become Salim. Charlie is in with Kurtz and Becker, she drove the Mercedes and dropped it off.

It is stylish, dense and John Le Carre is not a writer who would just slant his story towards the Israeli viewpoint. He is well aware of the complexities surrounding this contentious issue.

Despite Park's best efforts the series is just not fizzling enough.
