Symmetric Frames in "Patriot"

The Amazon TV series is high on using geometry and symmetry, a recurring visual style seen throughout the show "Patriot".

Created by Secret Life of Walter Mitty screenwriter Steven Conrad, the show is a quirky, weird, dark comedy showing off the glamorous grind of spy life that follows an intelligence officer named John Tavner. He must forgo safety nets and assume a non-official cover to prevent the country Iran from going nuclear. The show is not popular among the mainstream, its plot very specific and genre niche, however, it's a show that cinematic lovers would find pleasantries as it is filled with the ever-eye pleasing symmetry.
