Russian Doll: Season 1 (2019)


TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Russian Doll may be stuck in a time loop, but this endlessly inventive series never repeats itself as it teeters on a seesaw of shifting tones -- from fatally funny to mournfully sad -- that is balanced with exhilarating moxie by an astonishing Natasha Lyonne.

Critic Reviews for Russian Doll Season 1

All Critics (71) | Top Critics (25)

With the same humanity and attention to detail that it vests in all its intricacies, Russian Doll unwinds how the incoherent, shame-laden cultural image of mental illness diverges from -- and worsens -- the real thing.

Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) could rival even Annie Hall as a New York icon.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Its eight tightly scripted 20-minute episodes are funny, moving, and sometimes existentially terrifying.

There are a whole lot of ideas here -- a few thrown against the wall to see if they'll stick -- but the real pleasure of this four-hour head trip are the performances. Lyonne is outstanding.

It's a performance where the actor understands the character so well, down to every little gesture she makes, every twitch of her face, that it's startling, at times, to remember she's fictional.

Feb 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

With its creative script, acerbic humor, and fantastic performances (especially Lyonne), Russian Doll is a hit... now if only "Gotta Get Up" would GET OUT of my head.

Though Nilsson is the show's musical anchor, its soundtrack is curated to exude a certain New York cool...

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

It's all done in eight short episodes, a four hour, thoughtfully existential feast which, like the best of art, asks questions, large and small, that resonate with the human experience.
