Top Critic

The splendor of the visuals alone warrants a recommendation for the season...

Undone embraces a form of speculative storytelling that's closer to mythology. Its rotoscoped world might be merely a fun-house mirror of reality, but if you're brave enough to gaze into it, a mind-expanding adventure awaits.

Maybe the show will end right here, reminding both Alma and the audience that no matter how deep you go, you'll never have all the answers. Either way: Undone has been quite a ride.

Hisko Hulsing, who directed Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, manages to smoothly marry structure and visual disorder with effortless fluidity while also making the most of the story's potential in exploring sound.

It's a marvelous achievement in design and among the most visually stunning things you'll see on television this year. But when you look past the gorgeous presentation and into the substance, Undone proves more hit-or-miss.

Even as it shows off its meticulously constructed worlds, Undone hints at uncharted territories, leaving it up to Alma and the viewer to decide whether or not they want to venture into them.

Amid the oil-painting-style backdrops and scenes floating through space, "Undone" is a deeply personal story about a woman dealing with the limits of her own memory, and explores how stories about ourselves shape who we become.

Undone's unusual sense of flow makes you want to go with it, even when - maybe especially because - it's never clear where or when it's going to jump next.
September 12, 2019
Undone has so many things going on and offers so many other ways to become invested that caring about the literal plot hardly matters.
September 12, 2019
"Undone" has humor and story enough to make it more than an art object.
September 12, 2019
Every level of Undone compliments another, which encourages belief that the ending of the series will be as strong as the start.

Even when watching Undone is a deeply unnerving experience, it usually finds a way to twist its narrative, let its actors lean into their characters' flaws, and reap unexpected rewards from often shattering revelations.
September 12, 2019
The series shapes as a thoughtful reflection on the fallibility of human perception, and the animation effect dissolves the walls between our world and the outside perfectly.
September 10, 2019
A series worthy of deep examination, but which can be most accurately summed up in two words: Watch it.
