Trust in the Media

Brendan Fraser is on board.

Quote

Fraser will portray J. Paul Getty’s eccentric private investigator and master fixer James Fletcher Chace, who hails from Texas. The ten-episode drama — which is executive-produced by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and premieres in January — also stars Donald Sutherland (as J. Paul Getty) and Hilary Swank (as J. Paul Getty III’s mother Gail).

Not a positive review from the Hollywood Reporter.  Main complaint is that these characters are not likable and hence not watchable.

Not a lot of reviews yet but the RottenTomatoes Top Critics score isn't that good.

 

Apparently they previewed the first 3 episodes directed by Boyle to the critics.

You would think this series would be riveting.  I wish I liked it more. I've been doing online reading to refresh my memory of the kidnapping, as it occurred when I was a child.  Of course, the names are well known.

Den of Geek posted a largely positive review of episode 2. They mentioned my favorite bit about the episode, which is the way that Fletcher Chace (Brendan Fraser) breaks the fourth wall  to talk directly to the audience. http://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/trust/272244/trust-episode-2-review-lone-star

AV Club rates episode 2 as a B+, and has a lot of praise for Brendan Fraser: https://www.avclub.com/brendan-fraser-and-danny-boyle-make-a-winning-team-in-t-1824217856

The New York Times also had a positive review, here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/01/arts/television/trust-recap-lone-star-fx.html
