Emily Nussbaum on Tatiana Maslany’s performance in the sci-fi thriller “Orphan Black” (subscription required): http://nyr.kr/1i7OUnH

“If it weren’t for Tatiana Maslany, the show’s star, ‘Orphan Black’ would be just a likable-enough thriller, with Toronto local color—enough to recommend it to a Canadaphilic sci-fi buff like me, but maybe not to you.

Maslany explodes that calculation entirely. The actress delivers a performance so magnetic that it transforms the show into something with staying power, a near must-watch.”

“One of the most striking moments of the conversation is when David talks about how his friend Huey [Newton] was both his friend and his teacher. When he was reading [Frantz Fanon’s book] The Wretched of the Earth, and Huey said, “What you don’t understand, I’ll teach you.” Hilliard says that the Black Panthers were his education. That fascinated me. It’s about how an idea of community becomes established, in relation to political realities and the realities of friendship. These things are intimately entwined.”–Adam Pendleton
