Critical Condition: Undone

Undone | Amazon Prime Video

☆☆☆☆ “The extraordinary animation makes Undone a joy to look at … Undone is animated using a process called rotoscoping, where live-action footage is painted over …  Rotoscoping is rare enough — the only well-known fully rotoscoped movies are Richard Linklater’s Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly — but Undone goes even further. The rotoscoped footage is layered atop oil-painted backdrops.” — TV Guide.

☆☆☆☆Undone is so consistently and intriguingly eye-popping as an advanced sensory experience that it’s remarkably easy to forgive its failings on more simple narrative levels. Normally it would be hard to imagine endorsing an ostensible murder mystery in which I had zero investment in the mystery, but this series has so many things going on and offers so many other ways to become invested that caring about the literal plot hardly matters.” — The Hollywood Reporter.

☆☆☆☆ “Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy, Undone follows the life of Alma, a young woman living in Texas who finds her life turned on its head following a violent car accident that leaves her brain … altered. Undone is great television. But, more interestingly, it’s indescribably great television. It’s a show almost impossible to explain to someone without them having seen it for themselves.” — Forbes.

☆☆☆☆Undone has humour and story enough to make it more than an art object … But make no mistake — it is magnificent art, a world opulently realised from its oil-painted backgrounds to its sound design. You don’t watch this show so much as fall into it.” — New York Times.

☆☆☆☆ “Even when watching Undone is a deeply unnerving experience, it usually finds a way to twist its narrative, let its actors lean into their characters’ flaws, and reap unexpected rewards from often shattering revelations. There’s certainly no other show like it, which at this point is truly no small feat.” — Variety.
