Critic reviews for Where's the Dignity?
The Knick's medical staff members continue dancing around one another like chess pieces on a board, while others live or die by their moves.
So after weeks of simmering tension, The Knick finally came to blows this Friday night. Unfortunately it was Doctor Gallinger who gave Doctor Edwards a black eye, and not the other way around, but hey, we can't have everything.
Where's the Dignity - picks up more or less where we left off: crackling energy, unsettling tension, and another amazing dialogue-free visual sequence.
While it stumbles around in a few places and makes some regrettable choices in dialogue, 'Where's the Dignity?' is at least commendable for working so hard to define the narrative's core relationships as well as the characters in them.
The more they veer away from the hospital itself, the less interesting The Knick becomes.
