Sam Esmail unleashed an unflinchingly dark portrayal of life in his reality-bending series Mr. Robot. Viewers experience the world through the drug-laced eyes of lonesome hacker Eliot Anderson (Rami Malek). When an opportunity knocks for him to take down the invisible hand of a corrupt corporation, society as we know it falls.
Similar to what Black Mirror did for technology, Mr. Robot treads the crevices of conspiracy theories, unveiling an America living and breathing just beneath the surface. With stellar performances from Christian Slater, BD Wong and Bobby Cannavale, the series has cultivated critical acclaim and a cult following. After announcing next year’s fourth season as it’s final hurrah, fans can expect Esmail to stretch our imagination and nerves.
Make sure to catch Esmail’s new series – the psychological thriller Homecoming airing Nov. 2 on Amazon.
