October 29, 2018
Yet, the story of Gianni Versace feels fresh. That's because its a different approach. We aren't solving a murder. We're entering the mind of a sociopath.

As long as Murphy and the show's directors continue to pull no punches from the soap opera playbook, it's going to be one hell of a ride.
September 7, 2018
The caveat [is] that this will more than likely turn into the typical Ryan Murphy set up where he brings you in at the top of a series... and it ends up becoming, like, super-whack.
September 5, 2018
Despite the strength of the individual scenes, Darren Criss's fantastically unsettling performance and an impressive supporting cast... it's clear that for viewers of The Assassination of Gianni Versace a certain degree of patience will be required.
August 28, 2018
The Assassination of Gianni Versace is rough on some edges, but in its completeness it is a fascinating, operatic portrait of a flawed personality sealing his own fate through lies and delusions that lead to desperation...
July 10, 2018
Telling a story where everyone already knows the ending is always a challenge, and writer Tom Rob Smith overcomes this with strong character development.

June 28, 2018
American Crime Story, far from turning away from such details, cannot get enough of them.
June 21, 2018
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.
March 26, 2018
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.
March 26, 2018
[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.

March 14, 2018
Darren Criss is such a revelation in this role
March 8, 2018
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.
