My 347th Review: …this is as good as TV gets….
With production values that are mind-boggling, cast, and a budget to die for HBO is now what film studios were in the 1930s, they have the clout and the ability to go way further than most films can – and you get episode after episode.
the detailing is beyond accurate and lavish – every stitch, every furnishing, every telegraph wire looks and feels authentic and it is all shot and lit to the highest standards of film not TV.
The story of prohibition and Atlantic City is fully detailed, complex, with Steve Buscemi heading up a great cast. I have a gripe that the F-word was not ubiquitous at the time and strikes a jarring note in an otherwise near perfect production.
Where this shines is in the details – I just hope the story lines and acting live up to the promise – they certainly have so far.
Getting rid of prohibition, inhibition and all the other “bitions”
The quality of this show can be seen from the very start. And it’s not just because you get glimpses of what is to come (Chalky White and other characters introduced even if just for a short amount of time), but because of what information is packed inside it. It’s so rich with detail, both in the costume and set department/design and also the character insight.
Obviously you need actors to pull that off and it doesn’t hurt that Martin Scorsese is directing the very first episode. But there is more to it. As you can see (if you wish) in the extras/behind the scenes stuff, you have great visionaries behind the camera. The attention to detail is tremendous and it really pays off screen. Letting characters stay in the dark about how and where they are heading is genius too. It keeps them on their toes. Throwing in historical figures and making it look so smoothly is also quite a feat.
There is obviously violence and nudity and all that grown up stuff. But how else would you be able to depict the era or someone like Al Capone? So if you are open minded and have no issues with the above but embrace that kind of film and storytelling, you will have the best of time …
