the problem with red widow is that it just doesn't really push any buttons. As a gangster series its not really dark or edgey enough. And as a drama series it lacks compelling performances either. What is sad is that, the premise itself is really rich but the execution the performances, cinematography and directors just render a show which is kinda luke warm and Flat.
I did love the scene between Marta and Irwin, it was really powerful and emotionally effective. I guess i still just don't feel the overall darkness,desperation and danger of this world. i don't really feel the grief from the children.
throwing away all that coke into the water was the dumbest decision ever, C'mon Marta!!!
