News & Interviews for The Sinner: Season 1
The television version of a page-turner, as you inch forward in your seat, waiting to see where it goes next.
It's anything but breezy entertainment on a network where ill winds now blow. Even so, Pullman and Biel are solidly in charge of their pivotal roles.
[Given] Biel's committed, evocative turn, and the sure-handed direction of Antonio Campos, our interest is piqued enough to dig deeper.
This first season is essential viewing for crime fans who like their horses dark and their waters still.
Really, it's only so damn good because of Biel. You won't see her in the same light again.
In eight episodes, what the show did well was to establish a running sense of dread, set up questions that got answered -- sort of -- but set up new questions, until even the finest mystery buffs had to be scratching their heads in confusion.
