The first teaser for Netflix’s upcoming thriller, Ozark was intriguing, but holy next level; THIS ONE IS UTTERLY TERRIFYING. If you watched the earlier trailer, it was obvious Jason Bateman and Laura Linney’s Marty and Wendy Byrde had gotten themselves into something outside the law and tried to go into hiding; we had no idea just how deep that trouble went. This is going to be a binge and slam dunk of a series.
That line: “Your father is laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel” may say everything, but it’s the quick shots of near and actual violence that got my heart racing like crazy. Ozark looks brilliant. It’s never good when you see this … ask the Starks.
Ozark also stars Michael Mosley, Kevin L. Johnson, Jason Butler Harner, Julia Garner and Skylar Gaertner; meet me on Netflix July 21st.
