Why Steven Soderbergh Deserves an Emmy for Directing ‘The Knick’

20 July 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before “The Knick” scatters its characters to the four winds, Steven Soderbergh offers one last, literal reminder that he thinks outside the box. When coarse ambulance driver Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan) seeks counsel from a priest, his feet protrude from the confessional, and though his voice remains as sharp as if he were beside us, Soderbergh replaces the traditional depiction of penance—faint light filtering through the partition, illuminating a face wracked by guilt—with a far more ambiguous one.

The Austin TV Festival canceled a panel discussion titled “Viewer Discretion Advised,” in light of the mass shootings in Orlando, the deadliest in American history.

The discussion would have featured showrunners discussing “to what extent the violence shown in their series is needed and appropriate to authentically tell their story.”

Panelists scheduled to appear included Kurt Sutter (“Sons of Anarchy”), Jack Amiel (“The Knick”), Brian Michael Bendis (“Powers”), Noah Hawley (“Fargo”) and Universal TV VP of drama Stacey Silverman.

Atx co-founders Emily Gipson and Caitlin McFarland made the decision early this morning. In a message posted on Twitter and Facebook, they said, “Out of respect for victims of the tragedy in Orlando last night, we won’t be holding the Viewer Discretion Advised panel today. While it is a very important conversation to have, today does not feel like the the time to have it. Viewer Discretion Advised panel is cancelled.”
