This movie is fantastic and the cat steals the show.

Very well done, particularly the transformation of the accused.

I literally wish I could give this 10 stars!! Perfection! Take a bow HBO!

Kept us on the edge although a little far-fetched. Nonetheless, the characters are connectable and the dilemmas make you think and wonder what you would do in these situations.

Very engaging with great performances all around. John Turturro has been one of my favourites from as long ago as "Miller's Crossing." Well worth a try for anyone looking to while away five plus hours as winter continues outside!

THE NIGHT OF is an HBO mini-series set in New York City. It's about a college student (who is of Pakistani descent) who has been accused in the murder of a young woman. A trolling-for-clients lawyer, goes with his gut and represents him. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen to the young man; curious about the lawyer's skin condition; and was trying to figure out what would happen to the cat. The show stars Riz Ahmed and John Turturro.

The criminal justice system takes time and so does The Night Of, but I'm glad I stuck with this longer-than-most miniseries. It reminded me of The Wire, and Michael Kenneth Williams, who played Omar in that series, has a substantial role in The Night Of as well. The character John Stone is a great role for John Turturro, and his performance is perfect. The Night Of is from HBO, and is for mature audiences only due to violence, disturbing images, drugs, sex and profanity. The first and last episodes are each 90 minutes long, and the six episodes in between are each about 60 minutes long.

Absolutely outstanding. Great acting and enthralling story.

This excellent min-series is a remake of an excellent British mini-series "Criminal Justice." It tells multiple sides of the story (the police, police detectives, the defendant, his family, the defense lawyer, the prosecutor, possible suspects) interweaving all these facets and interweaving flashbacks, etc. for its 8.5 hour duration. Riz Ahmed playing defendant Naz, won an Emmy for his portrayal of the innocent looking college student who became a hardened prisoner while waiting for his trial. James Gandolfini was an executive producer (his last credit before he so sadly succumbed to a heart attack) and with his experience on the Sopranos, he knows what constitutes a great crime series. John Tuturro is a bonus.

“Do I look like a reporter?”
“Print, maybe. On camera, no.”
