Oh while I don't get why MUBI erases at one time this outburstingly subversive, boldly constructed masterpiece on the list (Drama series isn't worth as art?) this is one of best achievement ever by art itself. Zen-like brutal time lapse, ruthlessness of endless possibility, tour de force of every single actor, surprisingly sophisticated cinematography by soderbergh himself. You should see this now, immediately.
The gold standard for modern television. Reinventing the way we look at the dramatic series and the way it's shot. There is nothing like this on TV and there may never be again. A landmark cinematic vision from Soderbergh that is a total game changer, ready to be digested and discussed by generations to come.
Turn of the Century Disasterpiece. Like House only if 75% of the patients died gruesome deaths and the main character/suicidal Sherlock acolyte was (at best) the third best doctor on the show. No one gets out alive and still this is all we are.
For me, easily the best show of the past 20 years. The Knick made me google all sorts of stuff that I wouldn't normally want to read about. It is an education as much as it is a well-crafted, entertaining series. In a way I'm sort of relieved it got cancelled because this way I won't get to witness the inevitable decline in writing and acting that would've come with any attempt to make the show more "accessible".
Brilliant - easily the best thing Soderbergh's done since The Limey, 16 years ago. So stoked for season 2 in October; I've experienced serious series withdrawal ever since season 1 ended; if only I could've gotten some of that Bayer heroin, then the wait would've been more bearable!
