"Netflix would be stupid if they do not give Natasha Lyonne in ”Russian doll” everything she points to."
"Natasha Lyonne was even a promising barnstjärna lost in the abuse – but the tragic dramaturgy came to naught."
"New Netflix series ”Russian doll” is her autobiographical masterpiece."
"Long as was Natasha Lyonne ”American pie”star, who became a heroin addict, threatened a neighbor's dog and was arrested for drunk driving for the 2005 end up in the hospital with hepatitis C, heart problems and a collapsed lung, near to death. Now she is together with Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland's creator of the year so far best series, dramatically funny, psychologically complex and intricately constructed comedy drama, the ”Russian doll” (Netflix)."
"In eight episodes playing Lyonne the 36-year-old dataspelsutvecklaren Nadia (named after the 70-talsgymnasten Comâneci) suddenly dies, just like in the ”Monday the entire week” to re-emerge at the birthday party her friends have arranged. Just as in a game, where you are forced to start on a path and need to figure out how to reach the next level, get stuck in a perpetual loop of new choices. In the classification, it is possible to draw many parallels to the much talked about ”Bandersnatch” (Netflix), where the viewer decides the character's fate."
"The big difference is that the ”Russian doll” also is a deeply personal one, built on the Lyonnes own life (”vaguely autobiographical,” she says herself) and inspired by Bob Fosses classic ”All that jazz”, where danslegendaren on his deathbed looking back on life, just as her reached the age of addictions."
"Himself struck Natasha Lyonne through already at the age of seven, pushed by parents who she as well as generationsfränderna Lindsey Lohan and Britney Spears had a complicated relationship. ”Half Flatbush, half Auschwitz”, she wont galghumoristiskt describe their jewish släktbakgrund and raised in New York and Israel."
"Lyonne has been sparse with the details, but the portrait of the mother in the ”Russian doll”, played by bästisen Chloe Sevigny, is partly based on real events (”the car, the red hair and the watermelons” have Lyonne said with reference to one of the show's strongest scenes, a heart-rending picture of mental illness)."
"From the darkness in the beginning of the 2000s, Lyonne slowly worked their way back, via indiefilmer to its second breakthrough 2013 as Nicky in ”Orange is the new black”. The wide spectrum of female roles, follow with even in the ”Russian doll”, where Nadia, admittedly, suffer from a kind of life crisis, but one that neither with men or barnlängtan to do without something deeper existential."
"Just like a Russian doll-scaled layers of, for regardless of what choices Nadia is doing to outwit the game's logic is she has always stuck with himself. Perhaps no revolutionary thought, but with a crass and heavenly cool Lyonne in the starring role, colorful supporting performances (slemmige date Mike, who notes that ”I am the hole where your choice would have been”) and the mythical seedy punkkvarteren around Tompkins square park in New York city, becomes the ”Russian doll” completely irresistible."
"Thank goodness there's a plan for two seasons – and Netflix would be stupid if they don't give a Natasha Lyonne in its lifetime, the form everything she points to."
"... better late than never. In the never-ending deluge of new series and programs to detect, it is easy to lose sight of the small delights. At long last I have finally seen the entire crime series ”hidden in snow” (Viaplay), built on an idea of Leif GW Persson, and find that it is smartly written, funny and sad. Don't miss out!"
"... spying. ”The Mossad from the inside” (Netflix) is a documentary series in four parts about the fabled israeli intelligence service. Agents and former directors talk about their mission, more or less openly. The series provides an interesting insight into a ruthless world, even if one may have objections to the somewhat uncritical approach to the Mossads activities."
"... the crimea. I tipped off about the new season of ”Missing, never forgotten” already in the summer, but now finally the SVT begun to show the so a reminder may be in place. The historical case, this time about a teenage girl who disappeared at the turn of the millennium, and now found dead in a trollhättan. Cassie (Nicola Walker) and Sunny (Sanjeev Bhaskar) is a sensitive, intelligent and warm polisduo."
"... the gala. ”QX Gaygalan” (TV4), which are displayed after the Eurovision song contest in the morning tend to be one of the funniest and most relaxed of the events during the galasäsongen. Babben Larsson is this year's presenter."
