This Is All We Are
31 August 2019 | by LeCronopioSee all my reviews

I am deeply glad to have waited until now to see The Knick, and I simply did not expect a proposal of such a high narrative level. Not enough to be a period series, with an extraordinarily successful production, it owns an exquisitely subtle and complete plot and execution. The arches develop in such an organic and plausible way that you can almost feel the circumstances of the characters, which end up being what they are, and what they will try to be: a portrait faithful to the human being, with its lights, crosses, fears, qualities , with all its flaws, but that above all tries to transcend clinging to its ties in the attempt. There are no absolute catastrophes, unbeatable good, incurable bad, dream happiness or pandemic sadness, there are no happy endings or completely tragic endings, there is life, there is genuineness, there is reality. Thackery condenses and seals the series in an absolute scene with a phrase that portrays everything that it is with human fidelity, flesh and delirium, and that in no way could be improved; the perfect title of the chapter and goodbye: This Is All We Are.

Total Score (Show): 9.2 / 10
