Quotes

Madame Delphine LaLaurie: My great literacy began with Greek mythology. I used to sit on daddy's lap and he would read me those stories - full of their vengeful gods and wondrous, miraculous creatures. But the Minotaur was *always* my favorite. Half man, half bull. And now, I have one of my very own.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon did it again
11 October 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Story and plot wise this episode was just okay, but where it really excelled was Gomez-Rejon's direction. It was once again simply superb. He is a combination of Scorsese and DePalma on steroids. The way he uses the camera to capture images is beautiful, disturbing and weird, making even simple dialog scenes become special.

I said it before (in my review to the Anne Frank: Part II episode of the 2nd season), but I will say it again. He is a future Oscar director contender. This episode was just another proof. I can't wait to see next episode he directed. That alone will be worth tuning in. I know I will.
