Netflix's psychological thriller YOU: Review
Adjusted from the page-turning suspenseful thrill ride book of a similar name via Caroline Kepnes, 'You' is the exemplary story of kid meets young lady, aside from the kid is really an unhinged stalker. Indeed, a story we have been told previously yet this time we are getting it from the perspective of the stalker, who is played here by previous 'Tattle Girl' star Penn Badgley.
He assumes the job of book shop administrator Joe Goldberg whose interest for Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), a young lady who strolls into his shop one day, before long prompts fixation (like, after five minutes). One of the overwhelming parts of this story is exactly how effective and the amount he can get some answers concerning the object of his longing basically through web-based social networking. He doesn't stop there however, and soon he ends up ready to successfully verify the future he imagines with Beck.
'You' gives a one of a kind interpretation of the stalker point while additionally illuminating the manner in which we act via web-based networking media and exactly how uncovered we leave ourselves. It additionally pushes you into the ethically equivocal zone of winding up really pulling for these two insane children to get together, as lighthearted comedies have prepared us to do, until you understand that one of them is really insane. It doesn't help that those suspicious of Joe are in no manners amiable - his alcoholic neighbor and Beck's bombastic, entitled companion Peach - played by 'Quite Little Liars'' Shay Mitchell.
Badgley functions admirably here at strolling the barely recognizable difference between a decent person and a total sociopath. What's more, let's be honest, he truly sharpened his stalker abilities in his years as Dan Humphreys otherwise known as Lonely Boy otherwise known as Gossip Girl.
Most likely critical to note however, this is anything but an especially extraordinary show from multiple points of view. Addictive truly, yet it unquestionably originates from the sort of trashy spine-chiller you would expend in one day by a pool someplace.
The discourse is truly missing now and again, the characters are disturbing and the plot is frequently mind-boggling - it just so happens, Beck has colossal windows Joe can peer in at her getting up to assorted types directly from the road, and please, he's truly standing TWO FEET from her occasionally.
Yet, sure look, they can't all be 'The Wire' and as much as you may feign exacerbation at plot focuses or the pseudo-scholarly tripe that turns out now and again, 'You' is as yet a totally immersing suspenseful thrill ride.
