The Man in the High Castle. To any proud American this show will immediately get your skin crawling. It's meant to, and it does its job. An eerie version of Edelweiss (which is actually Austrian I think, just like Hitler!) starts the show as the shadows of enemy - or newly domesticated - paratroopers cut across Mount Rushmore. This immediately gives way to America's manifest destiny being parceled into Japanese-Neutral-German territory. The premise is simple, the Allies lost to the Axis and our punishment is brutal fascism. We immediately see the adaptation of Japanese culture in San Francisco, which to this former Bay Area guy didn't truly hit home until a middle aged white woman was watching Sumo wrestling on her relic television. Not exactly the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. The Japanese in this movie are methodical, polite, and resolute in handing down punishment. The Nazi representation - as if it could become more ominous - is largely indoctrinated Americans, yet they're as linear as their "torchbearers" in Berlin. Americans as Nazis is one of the toughest things for me to watch, and Rufus Sewell pulls it off perfectly. F*** that guy with a rusty Luger. Thankfully everything he believes is put in conflict. The territorial interplay makes for excellent suspense as the Nazis and Japanese passive aggressively maneuver against each other while simultaneously working to impede any domestic uprising. There's the usual love story I typically tweet through, but other than that there's very little formulae, so far as I can see. Watch it. It's incredibly well done. It's on Amazon Prime. All ten episodes were released in November.
