Sam Esmail clearly thinks his shots through; a delight for the eyes. He also knows how to hold tension, although it's often for not so much of a release. <spoiler>And that is unfortunately true for the overall story, whose very intriguing Shyamalesque setup ends up resolved with some Wikipedia trivia in a car.</spoiler> Still had a pretty good time overall.
