Why You Need To Watch: The Sinner
Share This Article:
This underrated psychological crime drama follows in the footsteps of Mindhunter as it unravels the motives for a violent and seemingly random murder on a public beach. After all the noise about psychological crime drama Mindhunter, it’s understandable if its understated partner-in-genre passed you by. But with a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and two Golden Globe nominations, if you haven’t seen it already, it’s time to schedule The Sinner into your next Netflix binge session. This murky thriller delves into the reasons behind an apparently random act of violence and unravels a mystery that manages to hold your attention from start to finish without falling into any cliché pitfalls. The show opens with a seemingly normal suburban housewife spontaneously stabbing someone to death on a beach. And she has no idea why she did it. As everyone deals with the immediate aftermath of such a savage crime, you soon find yourself dragged into an increasingly dark world of repressed memories and a convoluted investigation into her motives for murder. Jessica Biel shines as the troubled killer, jumping unpredictably from shy mother Cora Tannetti to unstable criminal and back throughout the eight-part series.
