‘Criminal: UK’ Review: Netflix Interrogation Drama’s Season 2 Is Fine-Tuned to a Fault

‘Criminal: UK’ Review: Netflix Interrogation Drama’s Season 2 Is Fine-Tuned to a Fault
Nothing is out of place on “Criminal: UK.” The closest things get to being disheveled is a chair left untucked or maybe a door left slightly ajar. Otherwise, the Netflix interrogation drama slides rather confidently into the polished professionalism category of TV shows, where drama happens in spite of perfectly designed interiors bathed in carefully controlled mood lighting.

It’s that sense of impeccable theatricality that leads to the central tension in “Criminal.” The audience is faced with suspects tied to crimes theoretically inspired by real-life instances of kidnapping, assault, trafficking, and murder. But the show itself often feels like a simulation. It’s a well-composed one, but that gap between the show’s raw real-time ambitions and the tidiness of the final product is one that always seems to hover over that questioning room table.

Criminal: UK” does benefit from a stellar ensemble, one that seemed settled into a

Official Secrets Trailer: Keira Knightley as Iraq War Whistleblower

Kayti Burt Jun 13, 2019

Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode, and Ralph Fiennes star in the real-life story of British whistleblower Katharine Gun.

Keria Knightley is an actress often associated with period dramas—a choice, she told BBC News while promoting her film Colette, because it's where she finds the "strongest roles"—but her latest film, while technically a period drama, takes place much more recently than the films we usually think of as falling into that category.

The movie is called Official Secrets, and it tells the story of British whistleblower Katharine Gun (played by Knightley), a civilian translator at the Government Communications Headquarters intelligence office in the U.K., who leaked top-secret information to the press concerning illegal activities by the United States of America in their push for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Official Secrets has a killer cast. In addition to Knightley, it stars Matt Smith, Matthew Goode,
