Neil Gaiman's Likely Stories
Adapted from the dark tales of prolific author Neil Gaiman (Coraline, American Gods, Stardust), this collection of distinct, odd and brilliant short stories is both cinematic and strange. In each film, each character is compelled to share their story and we're drawn into their very act of telling tall tales. While each episode has its own lead character, they are backed by an ensemble cast that play across all four bold and original films.
Simon is a man of routine. Rising, dressing, travelling to work on the DLR. Every day is the same. His sense of self is slipping away as he becomes (perhaps literally) someone else.
Feeders and Eaters
We’re caught in the nocturnal world of the all-night cafe where a waitress is told a love story – a strange, Gothic, warped and weird love story.
A late-night barfly is engaging in the tradition of weaving club stories for his fellow drinkers
Love almost everything Neil Gaiman does.
I'm a simple man... I see Neil Gaiman, I rate 5 skulls. Some really interesting plots in these little mini episodes. A tad Black Mirror-esque.
So far the first one was interesting. Gonna finish the rest.
I was not especially impressed with the first, but the second was much better. Each story is stronger than the last. By the end I was engrossed. I think the author inserts are a little much, but other than that I love this series.
