    If you’re looking for a whip-smart original thriller with equal parts emotion and email, heart and hard drive, you’ve found your first official summer obsession. ... Chloe earns all six hours of its expertly crafted mystery.

    Chloe is very much a thriller for our time, and our near future, because it’s like a preview of Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook “Metaverse” – intriguing, repulsive and thrilling in equal measure, and something you really do need to see.

    Vitally for a drama about fake identities and shifting truths there is not one false note in it.

    The result is an unusually human grifter story. Instead of diving into the trite subject of sociopathic behavior, like Inventing Anna or Dirty John, Chloe finds depth, authenticity, and even compassion in its profile of a scammer.

    This is not a tale of brute force determination. There’s a delicacy and a slipperiness here that feels organic to the story of a person trying to assert some control in an otherwise volatile life. ... Against a wave of similar shows that luxuriate in the lies, each incremental step away from the truth in “Chloe” carries a real, sobering weight with it.

    “Chloe,” is thoroughly enjoyable, especially as the plot becomes more complicated and Becky’s motives grow more ambiguous.

    Because of key performances from Doherty, Hall and Bennett-Warner, Chloe goes from a predictable stalking tale to an entertaining thriller that may take some unexpected turns.

    With a sharply-written script, nuanced direction, and deft acting, particularly on the part of Doherty, Chloe is a study in modern social dynamics and their psychological impacts as much as it is a ravishing mystery that needs to be seen through to the end.

    The premise may not be totally original and the plot occasionally daft but Chloe feels crisp and new and Doherty is like a breath of fresh air.

    With Becky plagued by her own imagined versions of how others see her, this is a tense and intriguing exploration of how we shape our identities both on and offline, and what happens when those versions of ourselves collide.

    With a compelling lead performance in the Chloe cast, an intriguing central premise and a strong visual style, not to mention a haunting original score from Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory, Chloe still appears worthy of a double tap.

    It all hangs together well, with the mysterious circumstances of Chloe’s death acting as an additional plot device. Ultimately, it’s a commentary on social media.

    “Chloe” is an intriguing tangle of lies and obsession, a well-made striptease of a show that slowly reveals all over six episodes of cringey psychological suspense. Heads don’t explode, super-heroes don’t save the day and nobody hires a hitman. Instead “Chloe” is that rarest of birds, an adult drama, albeit one stuffed with odd turns and awkward encounters.

It works both as a mystery, and also as an intrapersonal emotional drama that I suspect will resonate with many people. Full Review »

The series has fine chambermusic, good actors, the sea by night, lush settings from mansions to an art gallery, very spooky oil paintings and a great mother with dementia. But it lacks depth and originality. Objectively, Becky is not worse than any other obsessive and guilt- ridden protagonist. But we only see the surface (despite flashbacks, fears etc.), so she`s just mean. Full Review »
