Watched the opener today. We thought it was decent enough, albeit slow. As you know Flanagan, he likes to take the early time to set up the characters. It usually pays off later.
The color palette is lovely, focused on faded blue hues set against golden glowing hues. It's really nice.
Definite religious under/overcurrents.
Lots of cast from his prior films and TV shows are in this. Probably 10-12. I don't even hate Annabeth Gish here.
We could both see King's influence on Flanagan's writing, whether the language, or the imagery, or the themes.
Flanagan takes time to set up some family dynamics here, and some characters start out in the hole. The images that persist related to the opening scene are very striking.
We'll watch more this weekend.
