Storyline

Naz is a strait-laced Pakistani-American student who is off to a must-attend party on a Friday night. His only available transportation being his father's taxi cab, Naz sets off into Manhattan. But his party-going plans are quickly forgotten when a mysterious young woman jumps aboard in need of a ride. Charmed by her intense intrigue and good looks, Naz gets swept up by her pressures. After a mind-altering night of drugs and passion, the woman is dead, and Naz finds himself in the crosshairs of a gruesome murder investigation, panicked and shaken, but possibly with a trace of doubt as to his own innocence.

Wow -- What Great Filmmaking!
21 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's rare to see something so terrific -- the actors are uniformly brilliant, the direction so intricate, and the story so mesmerizing. I am a big fan of Paul Sparks ("House of Cards"), who is featured in this series. Turturro gives his best work ever. The writing is the best I've seen in years.

I promise that if you watch the first two episodes, you will be hooked. I have only re-watched a few movies in my lifetime (e.g., "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "The Man Who Would be King"), but I find myself re-watching every episode of this series to catch all the nuances and specific performances. Jeannie Berlin is a revelation. And the MUSIC is SO good!

The best movies are those that transport you to the time and place in which the characters reside. As in a dream, you are THERE while everything is going on, feeling lost, working against the odds to get somewhere safe. You will experience what it was like for Naz, Stone, the parents, Freddy, and even the jurors.

Riz Ahmed, the British actor, is terrific in the lead role. Michael K. Williams is predictably brilliant in his sinister, charismatic role as the Rikers prison boss. I can't imagine who in the cast has not submitted an award-winning performance here. I would give this series a 20 or 80 or 100 if that were possible. A perfect 10 is all I'm allowed.

This series should be an Emmy-winning sweep for everyone involved.
