American Crime Story: Assassination of Gianni Versace - What a Frightening Ride
14 January 2019 | by Tail_End_CharlieSee all my reviews

I appreciated this season of American Crime Story more than anticipated. The writing supercedes most other series, because the writers doggedly escavate the background of each lead character. And what they reveal is fascinating. The story carries on at a nice pace, and thankfully it is absent of the redundancy which most series are plagued with. The direction, production design, and editing were also well done.

The only warning I would give: if you avoid series which reflect true-to-life violence, then take pause.

Darren Criss was quite convincing in the lead -- in fact, he was scary-good. This year, I'm happy to discover his fine work, along with Richard Madden (starred in another series, "Bodyguard") -- both are quite attractive in a typical way, and this can limit the viewer's perceptions of their range... but they both blew it out of the water. Criss is deservedly winning various awards.

The rest of the Versace cast is quite committed, yet I felt the role of Donatella should have gone to someone like Lady Gaga (who is 3/4 Italian). She is blessed with such passion and a vocal prowess, that I am sure if she spoke (English) with an Italian accent, it would have been thoroughly convincing. Penelope tried her hardest, but I did not buy it, and her Spanish accent was distracting.
