I heard great buzz about this HBO mini series, so I thought I should check it out!
After 1 hour and 20 minutes, I don’t regret doing it!
The story was intriguing, especially because of the prohibition subject and, of course, being inspired by people like Enoch L. Johnson, Al Capone and Mickey Duffy. It just shows you enough to get you interested in finding out more!
The cast is amazing and i, personally, really liked Michael Pitt’s character- Jimmy Darmody and Kelly Macdonald as Margaret Schroeder, mainly because their story and their interaction with Steve Buscemi was so misterious, so lacking of the whole picture, that you know there is more then meets the eye!
And as some say, you can recognise Martin Scorsese’s work- it was beautifully directed and it felt like i was watching a movie, not a mini series!
I was a bit lost in the specific story of some of the characters, like the Italians, but there is time to understand it! I am willing to give my time to see the rest of the season!
Go check it out!
