MOZART IN THE JUNGLE
February 16, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Amazon Prime Video, 3:00 a.m. ET

 

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s Season 4 for this comfortably slick and clever Amazon series, which stars Lola Kirke as Hailey, an oboe player who has worked her way into the ensemble of a major New York orchestra. Gael Garcia Bernal plays Rodrigo, the temperamental, talented conductor, and this season he and Hailey have escalated their relationship to the point where he proclaims himself as her “boyfriend.” But there are other elements at play, and other players, too. I especially like watching three of this series’ supporting cast members: Malcolm McDowell, Bernadette Peters, and Saffron Burrows. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.
