Riveting stuff. A lot in there about Cunanan that I didn't know. It's one hell of a story. I've been meaning to get round to watching The assassination of Gianni Versace: American crime story. Have you seen it?All Cunanan. All night long.
Yes, it's a compelling thing. I haven't seen the fictionalized version yet but want to.Riveting stuff. A lot in there about Cunanan that I didn't know. It's one hell of a story. I've been meaning to get round to watching The assassination of Gianni Versace: American crime story. Have you seen it?
Gianni Versace's house looked amazing. That pool!
Oh..... ummm….. okay.Sorry, I didn't mean to upset you. Sometimes we forget that dark & twisted people have feelings too
I have to confess to a bit of a fascination with sordid high society crime. I have no use whatever for the kinds of downmarket domestic trailer park murders which have been painted across the small screen in recent years (a la 48 HOURS of DATELINE in the States, but I'm assuming most of the western media is doing the same nowadays) unless there's something really unique about them.Willie Oleson said:Yesterday I watched episode 2 (the American Crime Story version) and it's very different from season 1.
To be honest I don't know much about Versace but he seemed like a passionate man. His residence is not just big and opulent, it's beautiful with lots of personal details. I like people who appreciate beauty and beautiful things, and maybe that's why this crime story looks so sad and depressing.
The killer, a handsome male whore, is extremely unlikeable.
It all feels like such a waste.
Interesting. Very often a good documentary trumps a dramatic recreation.Hmm, just finished episode 4 and I must say it's getting a bit tiresome. At first it had a "Talented Mr Ripley" vibe but most of Cunanan's scenes are one-on-one, and it's so much easier to manipulate an individual rather than a group of people.
But anyway, he's bad and he's a faker but do I need to watch 5 more episodes to realize that? It almost feels like glorification of the serial killer.
It's certainly not as compelling as the first series (O.J.) but all the Versace scenes are nice.
I'm now watching the documentary you've posted (to cut to the chase) and I just realized why I don't like this story.Very often a good documentary trumps a dramatic recreation.
