Socialist Worker

Reviews round-up

Issue No. 2480

The Man in the High Castle

This highly awaited series adapts the classic novel by Philip K Dick—in which the allies lost the Second World War.

The former US is divided between Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Rufus Sewell as Obergruppenführer John Smith is particularly creepy.

Fans of the book may miss its philosophising. But its themes of authenticity and human freedom still come to the fore.

Series on Amazon Prime.
Episodes 1 and 2 out now,
whole season from 20 November
