Stateless: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Stateless: Season 1 (2020)



Critic Consensus: Stateless has great performances and good intentions, but its harrowing real-life tale is undermined by its underdeveloped characterization of the refugee experience.

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (15)

"Stateless" is consumed by an extraordinary exception instead of confronting the ongoing disenfranchisement toward displaced detainees.

The most frustrating issue here is one of narrative focus -- Stateless engages the refugee crises with some extremely tedious optics.

July 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A masterfully told, forcefully acted nightmare about life in a dirty, bureaucratically impacted limbo.

Netflix's six-episode drama Stateless is worth a look, but it's an uneven, fictional take on a situation that only seems to worsen around the globe.

Challenging immigration drama has violence, nudity.

Stateless, of course, has its heart in the right place. But by diminishing the POC characters it's supposed to focus on, it sadly ends up robbing itself of an opportunity to be a show that is truly remarkable and also important.
