The Many Saints of Newark

The Many Saints of Newark

Many Saints of Newark is at its strongest when it focuses on the new characters introduced in the film. this isn’t to say that every actor in this ensemble isn’t doing a great job. there are some very good performances in this movie, but the most compelling moments involve alessandro nivola, ray liotta and leslie odom jr. 

ray liotta is especially effective here. his performance paints a quietly electric and strong picture of a man who has been in prison half his life, doing almost nothing but thinking for 30 years. 

the tone is much bleaker than the series. i liked it ! hard to go really wrong when the writing is this good and the actors this talented. there was one particular stab in the heart moment — and its like oh yeah of course. its the sopranos
