Streaming Reviews August 2022 Part 2

1) "You Don't Know Me"--Netflix--series--4 episodes--3 hours & 44 minutes--Synopsis: When all the evidence points to his guilt a man on trial for murder uses his closing argument to recount his love with a mysterious woman--a good crime story but how it is told takes away from all the 'mystery'.

2) "The Gray Man"--Netflix--movie--2 hours & 7 minutes--Synopsis: When a shadow CIA agent uncovers damning agency secrets he is hunted across the globe by a rogue operative--you have to laugh as two guys trying to kill each other have time to make jokes--oh yes, the music as they strangle, punch and knife each other is also funny--by the way a lot of 'bad a$$ women can fight like he77 but never win a fight--a lot of violence and fighting and, though it is not meant to be funny it is and not in a good way.

3) "Girl In The Picture"--Netflix--documentary--1 hour and 42 minutes--Synopsis: a woman found dying by the side of the road leaves behind a son, a man claiming to be her husband and a mystery that unfolds like a nightmare--a very twisted story of incest, murder and abuse--sadly a horrible degrading story is told with a 'beautiful' veneer--they try to show this as a love story but love has nothing to do with it--it is a tough watch and not worth it.

4) "Alba"--Netflix--Spanish series--13 episodes--11 hours & 36 minutes--Synopsis: a woman is raped by her lover's friends and, possibly, him--this is the aftermath of the rape on both the victim and rapists--after dealing with all angles of the rape the last hour is strictly "Hollywood"--all in all about 2 episodes too long.

5) "Persuasion"--Netflix--movie--1 hour & 49 minutes--Synopsis: 8 years after Anne Elliot was persuaded not to marry a dashing man of humble origins they meet again--Henry Golding gets better in every movie and while Dakota Johnson does a good job there is no chemistry between her and Cosmo Jarvis, the latter completely miscast--Jane Austen characters speaking like a millennium? I don't think so and along with bad direction no thank you!
