The Knick Instrueret af Steven Soderbergh
In the series medium, Soderbergh has found a brand new canvas to test out visual ideas and off-kilter storytelling devices, and The Knick’s intoxicating second season proves to be a dazzlingly detailed and vibrantly visual mural of his obsessions, bringing on a sort of imagistic high that would count as the famed filmmaker’s most obvious addiction.

At times The Knick seems too ready to slip into the anti-Victorianism that replaces all virtue with hypocrisy, the questing, scientific spirit with greed and ambition. But it springs constant surprises – plot twists or shifts in tone or gut-wringing orgies of gore (gorgies?). It is not always convincing but it is nearly always peculiar, and that is not faint praise.

As Soderbergh’s camera stalks corridors streaked with visceral residue, peering in close at brusquely opened bodies, it digests the life-and-death despair of passing patients as much as it does the larger anguish of Clive Owen’s brilliant (naturally), drug-addled surgeon. Given time to grow, it could become to ER what The Wire is to NYPD Blue.
