The Night of Reviews
“The Night Of is certainly HBO's most electrifying series since the original True Detective, and one of the biggest and most intricate.” – The Australian
“Drawing influences from The Wire, this HBO show boldly tackles race in the face of the criminal justice system.” – Film School Rejects
“Having chosen pragmatism over self-pity, The Night Of becomes something new: An anti-antihero drama. Like found-object art or high camp, it is deceptively ambitious in its ability to dance so closely to the edge of derivation.” – L.A Times
