Netflix's Mute: The Pseudo Sci-Fi Head Scratcher That Could Have Been

Netflix has a new sci-fi drama starring Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux. And even with all that star power in the kitchen, Mute is cinematic gumbo that’s undercooked and overseasoned. (Light spoilage ahead, kinda-sorta, but I hope it doesn’t matter because this one’s a bust, lol.) Now, I'm gonna start with the pros, cause there were a few pros in this film.

We're all spoiled by mega-productions created by visionary directors, and we have to remind ourselves that it's okay for a film to be good and not great, and that being so doesn't warrant being trashed.
