“a series unlike no other on TV right now”

– Esquire

On Becoming a God has a masterful sense of authenticity and restraint”

– The Washington Post

“a cleaver, compelling, and thorough evisceration of American capitalism”

– IndieWire

“incredibly fun to watch”

– TV Guide

“one of the most gratifying moments I remember watching on TV this year”

– Daily Beast

“…a deeply weird, deeply addicting show, anchored by a dynamo performance from Dunst…”

– Daily Beast

“Kirsten Dunst… with a life-giving performance full of heart and, possibly more important, steel.”

– The Wall Street Journal

“One hell of a star turn from Dunst… one of the best performances Dunst’s ever given, verbally, physically and emotionally”

– Rolling Stone

“The music, an unequivocal highlight, matches the unsettling vibe with a tense, sparse score and occasional era-appropriate needle drops that never feel gratuitous, which at this point in TV is a genuine feat.”

– Variety
