News & Interviews for Waco: Miniseries
The Waco series seems overly eager to vindicate Koresh. And that taints an otherwise well-told story.
What Waco needs, and fails to achieve, is a complex, unified theory of Koresh.
A compelling, tragic tale that allows stars like Kitsch and Shannon to play different, surprising roles, just like the new cable channel that's featuring the show.
The show creates its own problems in telling this story, especially as it can't seem to handle the scope.
Waco won't be the first drama to reduce a tragedy to its simplest components, but this doesn't offer much confidence that these are the right components or the only ones.
