Family Feuds

2 Episodes

“Dysfunctional” doesn’t begin to do justice to the toxic families in these delightfully venomous tales of bitter, backstabbing clans. THE HYPNOTIST, Anna Biller’s witty, sumptuously Sirkian homage to the Technicolor melodramas of the studio era, concerns the machinations of a greedy, grasping brood whose downfall comes with a supernatural twist. Its gallery of ghouls is close kin to the scheming southern family who poison everything they touch in THE LITTLE FOXES, William Wyler’s masterful adaptation of Lillian Hellman’s classic play, starring a divinely duplicitous Bette Davis.
