CHICAGO – Cinemax’s ominous new series “The Knick” is a hospital drama that’s very much in the voice of its director, Steven Soderbergh. Set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, the series presents the medical world as it inches closer and closer to modernity, while making contemporary parallels to the desperate hustle by surgery room clients and their doctors alike regarding treatment of the human body. What has changed in the politics of medicine? What hasn’t?
On the Set: Into the Wee Hours of the Morning, ‘The Dark Knight’ Lights Up
CHICAGO – I told Phil Tadros (my on-the-street Hollywood cameraman) that his first two “The Dark Knight” video segments were good but could be better.
I encouraged him to dig deeper. This time, we bring you what you’ve been asking for: set footage. As in his second segment, he again uses the access-a-friend’s-apartment route.
This video was shot around 1 a.m. on Friday, June 15 at Clarendon and Cuyler in Chicago. At the 1:29 video mark, Gary Oldman (who plays Lt. James Gordon) can be seen in the black suit.
