The end of the f***ing world reparto
Imdb the end of the fun in world cast
The series that everyone is talking about had to pass through the blog. I suppose that if you haven’t seen The End of the Fucking World, it will ring a bell, you have it pending or at least the heavy friend of the time will have told you to watch it.
The first thing to say is that this series is a second adaptation, after a short film called TEOTFW (he kept the acronym). This in turn comes from a graphic novel by Charles «Chuck» Forsman. The series has a road movie/noir/black comedy structure.
I guess then they would start talking seriously. Because yes, The End of the Fucking World is the story of two misguided teenagers, but ultimately that reduction to absurdity would leave out a lot of the fun that makes your friend so heavy handed about you watching it.
I do have a few buts though. If you love the series you probably won’t like what you read next, but I feel a moral obligation to be honest and say what I think. And what I think doesn’t exactly go hand in hand with the wave everyone is giving it.
The End of the F***ing World is a British dark comedy-drama television series, based on the graphic novel The End of the F***ing World by Charles S. Forsman. The first part consisted of eight episodes and premiered on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on October 24, 2017, then the full season premiered on All 4. The End of the F***ing World was released exclusively on Netflix internationally on January 5, 2018. On October 8, 2019, Netflix announced the date of the second season which was available from November 5, 2019 and also consists of a total of 8 episodes.
The series follows James, who is a boy who defines himself as a psychopath, meets Alyssa, a girl who in her words, «hates everyone». Both James and Alyssa go to the same high school and have a seemingly unhappy life. Alyssa meets James after arguing with her friends because one of them talks to her on her cell phone while sitting in front of her and eating together; this upset Alyssa a lot so she breaks her phone and leaves, at that moment she stops in front of James, since she had noticed him before, and decides to talk to him. The two leave high school together and begin an apparent dating relationship. James’ personality attracts Alyssa while James only thinks about how he would kill her. James is looking to kill a human being, he had already experienced the murder of several humans.
So, is he the one marrying Alyssa? No. Alyssa’s life has done a 180, but she’s still the same sassy, nihilistic teenager. She moves in with her mother at her aunt’s house, a place in the middle of nowhere where she works as a waitress at the family restaurant.
But in Bonnie’s disturbed and dysfunctional mind, the protagonists are just two sadists who murder for fun. James and Alyssa pick her up from the road while she’s hitchhiking…. and it all gets complicated from here.
The end of the f world season 3 release date netflix
James is a nihilistic and dangerous sociopath, but Alyssa has fallen in love with him and, as soon as they can, they embark on their particular escape leaving several deaths in their wake. Their violent fantasies and their love for each other merge in a journey of anguish and fear, a dramatic road trip reminiscent of films like Badlands, Wild Heart or Point Blank Love.
With an unusual narrative tension, Forsman’s comic plays with a delicate aesthetic that clashes with the extreme violence of some passages, the point of view of the narration and the dialogue reduced to the minimum expression, factors that turn this story into a masterful example of economy of means. How many times have the physical and psychological goodness and evil of two jaded teenagers been portrayed better than here?
The end of the fucking world has been adapted for television by director Jonathan Entwistle, with Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden as the lead actors. Its following on the Netflix channel is unprecedented to date.
