Is It Any Good?
It's basically a promotional video, but this documentary offers a bit more than the standard fare of programs like these. While there are plenty of highlights from the first three seasons, the special also offers a glimpse into the audacious approach and creative process of the show's creators and writers. For aspiring screenwriters, Money Heist: The Phenomenon is a study in how to develop characters, create story arcs, and give the audience the unexpected. For those interested in careers in film and television, the documentary presents the highs, lows, long hours, high stress, and high rewards that go into filming some of the show's more elaborate scenes.
Obviously, this is best for those who are already fans of Money Heist, as there are some spoilers in what is also a preview of the fourth season and a recap of some of the surprising moments from the last season. In spite of these spoilers, for those unfamiliar with Money Heist, the documentary does a very good job of showing not only the international appeal of the show, but also what it is that makes the show such a worldwide sensation.
