Mr. Robot

TV-Series | 1 x 60' | USA 2015 | OV

IT security expert Elliot autistically floats through life. As a hacker by night he wants to dispense justice, and he feel vaguely attracted to both his colleague Angela as well as to his psychiatrist Krista. But his loneliness, pathological paranoia and social inhibitions leave him in despair and in doubt over the human race. When he is pointed towards a group of cyber activists lead by the mysterious Mr. Robot, he finally seems to have found the conspiratorial parallel world he always longed for – or is all this just another of his hallucinations? The pilot for this tech thriller series was directed by (the Swedish) GIRL WITH A DRAGON TATOO helmer Niels Arden Oplev and kept in muted and cool colors, but with vibrant intensity. Rami Malek with his bug-eyed, magnetic charisma is a real discovery as the protagonist – and Christian Slater is an equally impressive re-discovery as the titular hobo anarchist mastermind. MR. ROBOT started to rave reviews and great ratings and is one of the US TV sensations of the year.
