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.
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...
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.
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.
