“The Bureau”: Review & Podcast

Posted: July 20th, 2020 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 2 Comments »

OK, I’ll lay it out for you right from the get go.

If you are familiar with my tastes and work here, you know that I consider David Simon’s “The Wire” to be the best drama, any medium, ever crafted in the English language.

Hyperbole? Of course. But I believe it to be true.

I’ve never come close to accepting any successor as worthy of mention in the same breath.

Until now.

I’ve fallen prey to the elegant craft and intrigue of the French series, “The Bureau,” streaming at Sundance Now.

It’s centered around the people and work of the DGSE, the French equivalent of the CIA.

I’m totally addicted, and have consumed the first fifteen episodes of the five season series in the last three days.

For a more thorough explanation why “The Bureau: has my highest recommendation, listen to the podcast below:
