I love "The Night Of" so far. The flawless casting lends so much to the story, but Jeannie Berlin's performance in "Subtle Beast" WAY pulled me out of it. Perhaps this is insensitive to working stroke victims, but I couldn't get past the slurred, mumbled, flat delivery of her lines. When the camera gave a clear look at her face, she seemed completely drugged out, propped up and puppeteered. Jeannie Berlin's interpretation of district attorney Helen Weiss ripped me right out of the moment and ceased to suspend my disbelief. I even had to look her up on IMDb to see if there was a story behind her casting and perhaps it has to do with her mother Elaine May, much like her daughter, resurfacing on television after decades retired from the industry. I appreciate Elaine May is an award winning Hollywood legend, but her daughter, Jeannie Berlin, is Ishtar level bad in an otherwise note perfect cast.
