Critic reviews for This Is All We Are
Tune out the dialogue and simply become immersed in the show's colors and textures... it's a complete and satisfying dreamscape. But try and follow the plot, and it all comes crashing to earth.
If anything, The Knick is a relentless reminder of the abject horror in the banality of everyday living, and God, I couldn't get enough.
Brilliantly directed, beautifully acted, sometimes spottily written, 'The Knick' has been - and may continue to be - an exciting experiment.
"This Is All We Are" most certainly raised the bar on the Thackery-insanity front.
Watching the Harriet and Cleary story arc come to a gentle conclusion was the most satisfying part of this season finale.
