Nothing majorly new being done here, but the writing and filmmaking is so confident and intelligent, and Torturro and Ahmed do phenomenal work. Uses the miniseries format to burrow into its multifaceted subject with giddy focus, sculpting emotional layers and then shattering them at all the right moments. I'm still cradling the pieces, not quite sure what it is I'm holding (and I mean that in the best possible sense)
Dans ce magnifique drame de l'inéluctable mécanique policière, carcérale et judiciaire, la tragédie tient toute entière dans ses héros, si parfaitement humains, si délicatement dramatiques et ambigus... pour démonter d'une manière anthropologique la machine à créer du coupable. Parfait !
A David Fincher-like style and atmosphere, excelent framing, amazing performance from John Turturro, twisted characters, gripping plot... in short, there's not much to dislike about this mini-series. The story has been retold a thousand times, but never like this. And while there may be a few cliches here and there, they are being presented in an entirely new fashion.
Dissolve-se demasiado rápido. Nenhum personagem é realmente complexo. Court-room drama até que apurado, ganhando algum interesse, ofuscado pela dispersão e floreado das narrativas independentes de cada personagem. Vi na boa, mas esperava um comentário mais relevante.
Una miniserie in otto puntate che è una vera e propria bomba. The Night of è un thriller (con qualche influenza da legal thriller) che di certo non è nulla di nuovo ma è scritto talmente bene che vorresti farti una maratona di dieci ore e sparartelo in un'unica soluzione.
Following the footsteps of revived format of mini-series, it tells a story that was done many times before but nowhere near as stylish and haunting as this time around. Although the entire whole never matches the outstanding opening episode, dark and cold tone stays ever-present to fill a dread of every moment. And John Turturro soars as a heart and soul in a show where there's not much room for any of those.
I loved Criminal Justice, and it was nice to see that this American 'remake' version didn't follow it completely. Whilst this is much more interesting in style, I can't say I got excited like I did with the UK version. Some of the characters such as Stone, and Box, were also better in the UK one. The pilot was fantastic, and almost a nice standalone film; but my interest really declined after 4-5 episodes.
