Ricky Martin (surprisingly brilliant) and Penelope Cruz (mind-blowingly superb) are the standouts in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace – a series of such consistently high quality and attention to detail that it is utterly unmissable. The OJ Simpson series one was fantastic. This one manages to be even better. Top marks Season 2 of American Crime Story on FX is so.damn.good. Reading the book by Vanity Fair’s Maureen Orth makes it better!
Darren Criss (you may remember him as Blaine on Glee) is absolutely AMAZING as the psychopath, Andrew Cunanan. The character study is brilliant. I don’t know how much of it is just made up drama and how much of it is accurate, but it doesn’t matter. It’s a great story that will have you on the edge of your seat at times. If you get into a character study, you will love this show.
In your life, you will have known someone who is like Andrew Cunanan.. a psychopathic liar. It will make your skin crawl!
All the main actors have been astounding. I’ve learned much of the psychology and subculture of this hidden gay underbelly. It’s too bad more of the public isn’t as riveted as I.
