One of the best dramas of the decade, concludes.
April 6, 2018
It's dark and complex and tragic, and it deserves a much better reception than the one it received. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out on something special.

It may lack some of the sparkle of its forerunner, The People v OJ Simpson, but this rather glossy take on the events leading up to the fashion designer's murder in July 1997 continues to be fascinating.

[A] thrilling end.
March 22, 2018
Versace is a paean to one of the greatest artists the world ever knew, but it also tallies the destruction of prejudice that has yet to be fully rooted out.
March 22, 2018
Murphy renders the viewer complicit in the sensationalism, only to pull the rug out from under us as the series proceeds.
March 21, 2018
Penelope Cruz's new show is more stunning than she is.

The show has style and star power to spare.
March 5, 2018
Callous as it may seem, we already know what happened to Versace. At its best, this isn't about his assassination at all, but his assassin.
March 5, 2018
For those who thought (as did I) that it was a bit of a fuss in 1997 over a dead frock-jockey, the nine-part drama The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story will prove a surprisingly necessary corrective.
March 4, 2018
American Crime Story says more about our consumption of crime than it does about anything else.
March 1, 2018
Criss manages just the right blend of camp charisma and obsessive weirdo mendacity as the contrast is made between the fêted designer's eye-bleeding wealth and the sociopath's empty life and wardrobe.

Season two, by contrast, packs a gilded aura of decadent fabulousness lingers over The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

You don't need to feel too guilty about what promises to be a glorious and, given its central subject, eminently unjustifiable pleasure.

It's a terrific opening episode, and the only one directed by Murphy himself.
February 20, 2018
Versace is truly Murphy at his finest - it's scarier than American Horror Story, with dark humor à la Nip/Tuck and dotted with his signature camp featuring a heavy dose of glamour and the grotesque. And yes, I think it's better than Simpson.
February 15, 2018
Television has seen so many crime shows, and so many serial killers, that most viewers are numbed by the deaths of their victims. Versace's greatest strength as a series is the way it makes you care again.
January 25, 2018
Gripping story and Criss is outstanding but it would have all played better in a linear fashion

Fashion icon murder tale limits facts, moves slow.

Assassination operates like an enormous tuning fork that vibrates in response to the waves of tension that undermined gay existence across America in the 1990s.
