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.
1. Foreign Parts
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.
2. 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.
3. Closing Time
A late-night barfly is engaging in the tradition of weaving club stories for his fellow drinkers
When he asked if these stories shared a world, it was then that I appreciated it all the more. This isn't a collection of horror. It is a collection of human. Beautiful human.
Episode three was tough to get through. It seems all woods have their secrets. All in all an excellent series.
Episode 3 hit me hard I have a similar tale just now remembering something...someone.
Neil Gaiman's work is always fascinating, and his live interviews and quotes worked into the series make it even more hypnotically enchanting.
One of the best series ever made. Loved it the whole way through. The last episode with the photographer is excellent.
