Zombieland

Dark Vision of the Future in Atmospheric ‘Stake Land’

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 3.5/5.0
Rating: 3.5/5.0

It’s far from perfect but it’s incredibly promising, unlike the future of the characters it presents.

    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?
