Watched the premiere of American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace (yeah, it's quite the mouthful) last night and it's looking like it's going to be a show for me. This is quite the different chapter compared to American Crime Story's previous season which centered on O.J. so you probably shouldn't go into this new season expecting more of that. Another common misconception is that this show is looking like it's going to be focusing more on Andrew Cunanan, Versace's killer, than Versace himself. Cunanan was a gay man living in America during the 90s and it's looking like this show is going to tap into his psyche and what led him to murder not only Versace, but four other victims.
The story is captivating so far and the cinematography is super lush. The opening sequence was beautiful and bright. Hoping to see more of that as the season treks along. I'm also digging the flashback and flash-forward devices that the show is using to tell it's story. The premiere opens with a (literal) bang as we witness the actual assassination and then we go back in time to the early 90s to a younger Cunanan, and then back again. I'm expecting more of that this season.
Anywho, I'm looking forward to this.
