Finally finished re-watching 'The Night Of'; prolonged viewing because it’s even better after some time; esp, the ending. The first time I watched it, I noticed a plot hole in the evidence (beneficial to the defense) that seemed much larger with second viewing--anyone else?. The Rikers Island scenes were more brutal than I remembered, but subdued by the painterly Chiaroscuro-like cinematography of the ruthless killer/protective inmate, Freddy, and of his cell ............
..........to look strikingly beautiful, almost like a Rembrandt.
Can’t think of any actor or character that didn’t fit. (I remembered Jeannie Berlin, who played the seasoned prosecutor, from her terrific early-career performance as the tragic/comic abandoned newly-wed in the original ‘The Heartbreak Kid’).
Netflix finally released ‘Taboo’ in dvd w/a ‘short’ wait time, so looking forward to them sending it.......eventually.
Don’t understand the appeal of ‘Stranger Things’..........got about 5 minutes into the 2nd episode before falling asleep.
