Just: WOW!!!
23 March 2017 | by gogoschka-1See all my reviews

Holy effing cow, this episode was insane!!! It's like 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' made love to 'Inception', and this was their crazy beautiful baby. What a mindfu** of a psychedelic thrill ride and what a celebration of creativity and inspired filmmaking. Episode 7 of 'Legion' just showed what television can do when artists have free reign and are not hindered by the necessity to aim for a mainstream audience.

What Noah Hawley and his team have achieved with 'Legion' so far can't be praised enough; this is what it looks like when filmmakers take risks and really try to create something unique, fresh and new - and with complete and utter disregard for conventions. So far, this whole show has been a firework of inventive visuals (combined with perfect musical choices) and clever ideas, but this episode in particular is nothing short of a television masterpiece. Outstanding and just: WOW! 10 stars out of 10.
