The Sinner: Season 2 Reviews

August 15, 2018
Unsettling and familiar.
August 6, 2018
The Sinner is a hell of a lot of fun, and it anchors its sensationalist material with grounded performances and dispassionate camerawork.

In essence, making the motive the mystery, as opposed to the identity of the killer, represents the smallest of twists, but works plenty well if it's executed properly.

That's what this season of The Sinner is: an intelligent August thriller that'll hook you in so firmly, it'd be impossible to disengage from its grasp, even if Carrie Coon were not involved.

Season 2 continues to pull viewers in with a carefully curated balance of talent and story.

Coon is perfectly enigmatic, not quite the season's villain and yet utterly unsettling whether evincing chilly, clipped leadership or in her few moments of emotional release.

This is the one case where the only need for a critic is to remind you to watch.

It's weirder than its predecessor... It may run out of steam, too, but it feels like a story better-designed to play out over a full season; there are so many more moments that will inspire profanity-laced questions about what could be happening here.

Season Two has only just begun its twists and turns. But so far, so good, with ample possibilities still in play while Harry's head tries to stay in the game.

Season 2 has enough going on it could spin off the rails, but the mere fact it has so much working for it thus far is a big win for everyone involved. The Sinner is no one-hit wonder.

Some of the storytelling feels less refined than last year... but the cast is again strong enough that The Sinner could again be an addictive summer distraction right when we need it.
