News & Interviews for The Looming Tower: Miniseries
The effect is to turn the story into a police procedural where everyone knows the bad guys are going to get away with it and the personal struggles of the main characters feel especially low stakes given the tragedy we know is inevitable.
It's like watching Tom and Jerry play a testosterone-fueled game of cat and mouse while a venomous snake quietly slithers past them in a suicide vest.
On the evidence of the first episode, it is quite a gripping series, and there are two fantastic performances at its heart.
