News & Interviews for The Looming Tower: Miniseries
On the evidence of the first episode, it is quite a gripping series, and there are two fantastic performances at its heart.
... The Looming Tower is a taut, tense restaging of the internecine squabbles between the FBI and the CIA in the lead-up to 9/11.
It's a bitter history lesson, artfully delivered at a time when we're still coping with the aftermath.
Fresh from playing a Bible-spouting mass murderer in Neftlix's Godless, the very busy Jeff Daniels turns to rival streamer Hulu for another command performance.
Every time The Looming Tower threatens to spin off into melodrama completely, the cast (and talented directors) find a way to ground it.
