Ormai è anche divertente arrivare per ultimo, è il mio destino. Ho cercato di spiegare nei commenti di un articolo che lo stesso era scritto male perché indicava che il "bail" corrispondeva ad una somma interamente versata per evitare la prigione prima del processo. Nell'inutile discussione con persone che ignoravano totalmente di cosa stessi parlando (ma parlavano lo stesso) mi han suggerito questa serie, su Prime. Sneaky Pete. BANG! Prima stagione bevuta tutta d'un fiato. La guardavo e non capivo cosa stesse succedendo ma il deja vu era notevole. E infatti: di David Shore e Bryan Cranston. Il primo è l'artefice di Dr. House, il secondo un attore e autore strepitoso. Giovanni Ribisi spettacolare, trama avvincente (ma, ormai, son anziano, e i colpi di scena di questo genere di film li anticipo tutti, ben pochi mi sorprendono) e un cast notevolissimo per nulla edulocorato. A metà strada fra Il talento di Mr. Ripley e Ocean's Eleven, o fra La Stangata e American Hustle, ci consegna uno spaccato MOLTO reale della provincia statunitense condita con un po' di meno realistico gioco alla truffa. E il fatto che a Bridgeport, dove è ambientato, ci son stato qualche volta, mi sa che ha contribuito a farmela piacere. #davidshore #briancranston #sneakypete #giovanniribisi
