TV: The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story – (3.5/4)

This series is textbook “How to Properly create a biopic.” With multiple accounts to base its adaptation, this limited series excels at documenting and re-creating this gray period in history. It’s art imitates life at its finest.

It’s not just the authenticity to admire about this show though, it’s everything from the screenwriting, pacing, and all around tight filmmaking that makes it truly great.

Normally bipoics suffer from cliched filmmaking and they tend to idolize their real-life subjects. Not even Marsha is “idolized” here, creating depths and ambitions in all corners of the ensemble.

I look forward to more American Crime Stories as this series starts with some serious major fire power.
