If you think you know what this show is going to be about, you are entirely wrong. The synopsis of this movie does not do it the justice it thoroughly deserves, as someone who loves spoilers, giving, and receiving, I feel this strange urge to guard this movie because I want everyone to sit down and watch it and be as mindblown as I was while seeing it.
To show just how gobsmacked this show left me, it took me roughly three days to finish, not because of the length, but because of the emotional and mental strain, I need breaks in between to catch my breath. The movie is set in an asylum; “If God created us in his image and likeness, like a sculpture with no flaws,” the asylum’s director Samuel Alvar argues, “the patients who end up here would be like God’s crooked lines when he was learning to write.”
What exactly is and isn’t true? God’s Crooked Lines is a Netflix Original based on the 1979 novel “Los renglones torcidos de Dios” by Torcuato Luca de Tena. It is directed by Oriol Paulo and written by Paulo, Guillem Clua, and Lara Send.
It is a must-watch, I assure you that.
