Murder at the End of the World Recommendation. That’s it. That’s the post. “I, Taylor Holmes, being of sound mind, and thorough infatuation, do solemnly swear, that you, random internet user, should definitely, without passing go, without collecting 200 dollars, begin watching Murder at the End of the World.” What? Why are you still reading? That’s all I’ve got to say on the matter. Oh, alright, I’ll say more… but after the trailer.

Murder at the End of the World Recommendation

The movie is written and produced by Brit Marling. She also has an enlarging part in the show as well. We are still unclear as to the entirety of her role. But we shall see. If you are wondering why I would make such a big deal out of the fact that the film is written by, acted in, and directed by, Brit Marling – then you obviously do not know any of her other films. The OA being the most widely known. But also Another Earth, and The Sound of My Voice as well. A lot of ink has been spilled here on this site simply because Brit Marling exists on the earth (this earth) today.

The official series summary: “The series follows Darby Hart, an amateur detective. Darby and eight other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must use all of her skills to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.” So, at first, it sort of feels like a very Agatha Christie sort of show. But I’m three episodes in now, and while it started there… you know, the standard… let’s assemble a pile of people who can’t leave, and then start killing them sort of a series – it is deviating the deeper in we go.

I’m pretty excited with what I’ve seen so far, and think that the series has a lot of potential. Better yet? Brit Marling and her creative partner – Zal Batmanglij – don’t seem to be cancelled after Netflix’s rude (and completely inappropriate) cancelling after season 2 of The OA. Talk about killing something mid-swing for the fences!?!? Gah. Regardless, it looks like they’ve been able to create something new, and that, above all else, makes me happy.
