  • Why no one is complaining that a Caucasian man (Algerian descent) was given a tan and allowed to play an Indian/Vietnamese man. Whitewashing once again. Look up photos of Tahar Rahim. He has very white skin and Caucasian/Mediterranean features.

  • I've never seen a movie before, in which people smoked so much cigarettes. There is no setting without a weed. Even in the 1970s, cigarettes were not eaten. Another topic: Does Netflix productions have the imposed economy mode with regard to lighting? Or is the gloomy lighting in all historical Netflix works just the result of a gaffer in waking coma and fan of Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece "Barry Lyndon"?

    • @Wandering Aura Comment avez-vous trouvé la performance de Jenna Coleman ? Personnellement je trouve que c'est très dommage qu'ils n'aient pas choisi une vraie actrice francophone pour jouer son rôle... Elle y a clairement mis beaucoup d'effort, mais entre sa mauvaise prononciation, et le fait que son accent n'est pas du tout québécois ni crédible, ça fait mal a regarder... ahah

  • The series was good but to be truthful, in terms of production it fell flat. Bad acting for the most part, poor directing and I suppose lousy cast as well. The dialogue is for the most part forgetful and disappointing. The show fails to capture the stark reality of the dark shady characters while the victims are lost in bad directing. One of the worst Netflix shows. If you want to know about Sobhraj Just watch a documentary.

  • This gripping, shocking, and fascinating story of serial killer Charles Sobhraj will captivate the audience as the story will creep under your skin in the most insidious of ways. The use of a reverse-chronological structure of this mini-series at first seems a bit confusing but ends up drawing the viewer deeper in the storyline which sprawls over decades filled with bank robbery, cheque fraud, passport manipulation, terror, murder and crosses several continents. Only the unwavering dedication of a young low-level diplomat Herman Knippenberg who was caught between his struggle of duty and moral obligation ultimately brings Charles Sobhraj to justice. After binging the series, I felt overwhelming appreciation for Knippenberg's work and dedication in this case and hail him as a true hero. Be prepared to binge this limited serious as it will be difficult to stop watching.

  • Upon diving down one of those rabbit holes 🕳 after watching this Netflix miniseries, I find Charles Sobhraj’s mom-in-law (who’s also his lawyer) talking about acquittal 10 years ago. He didn’t get it, thank God. Then I find his current wife, a Nepalese national who he married in 2008 when she was 20 and he was 64. Since then she’s become a reality TV star in both Nepal and India - was in India’s version of Big Brother. And she is completely certain he is innocent. Jiminy, that fellow must ooze the most magnetic killer charm (pun intended)! There are articles about him receiving heart surgery and one local article saying he might get early release due to Covid. But nothing else I can find confirms this. I had heard about the Hindi movie “Main Aur Charles,” and keep meaning to watch it just because Randeep Hooda is such a phenomenal actor. But I didn’t know what it was about until today when a little side tunnel opened up in the rabbit hole. So now I’ll be trying to find it. Sheesh, SNL was right when they talk about binging on these murder mysteries and then looking up everything you can about the real people in them. 🐰 🕳
