'American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace'

'American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace'

CRISS: (As Andrew Cunanan) It's not a brag. The plain truth is that we know more about Gianni than we do Cunanan, and the most ugly mysteries have more allure than the gilded lives of the pretty and famous. "I haven't seen [the show] nor will I see it, because after all this time it still hurts to see Gianni represented untruthfully", Gianni's sister Donatella Versace told Italy's La Repubblica newspaper. The second installment of the true-crime anthology series that Ryan Murphy began with The People vs. O.J. Simpson, Versace tells another blood-soaked story about the crazy-making quest for wealth and fame - or at least the appearance of it.

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) You tell gay people you're gay and straight people you're straight. "She told me if somebody was going to do it, she was really happy that it was me, because I think she knows what I feel for her and Gianni", Cruz said. Where Versace uses stories to open up others and connect with them, Cunanan is written as a nimble yet desperate creator of his own history and personal experience. "The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous.Maybe it's the director's poetic license, but that is not how I reacted".

Executive producer/director Ryan Murphy, executive producer Nina Jacobson, executive producer Brad Simpson, executive producer/writer Tom Rob Smith, consultant Maureen Orth, actors Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez and Ricky Martin of the television show The Assassination of Gianni Versace speak onstage during the FOX/FX Networks portion of the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena on January 5, 2018 in Pasadena, California. Versace and Antonio's relationship is delicately and convincingly rendered, which initially gives off the sense that Murphy is also attempting to discuss and critique the perception of AIDS, the fashion world, celebrities, and gay relationships in the 90s. To love him - was I paid to love him? But in between the two parts of the show dedicated to that day, there is a flashback to seven years earlier that shows the two men meeting in San Francisco.

Versace is filled with excellent smaller performances, such as New Girl's Max Greenfield, so fine as a slimy South Beach hustler who briefly partners up with Cunanan, and M*A*S*H's Mike Farrell, superb as a wealthy older man pathetically grateful for Cunanan's condescending attentions. He visits Lee Miglin, a renowned Chicago developer, who is infatuated with him.




Veracity is unlikely to stop the popularity of The Assassination of Gianni Versace in its tracks, however; like its predecessor, this season has collected a glittering cast of stars, clearly hoping to amp up the more glamorous aspects of the story.

"You feel much more responsibility (playing a real person)".

But "Versace" recognized that flaw and made a show about the origins of a killer while focusing on all of his victims. However, he feuded with Versace family members and walked away with a fraction of what Gianni had meant to leave him.

Still, the season's glaring flaw was that, like a lot of fiction and nonfiction work surrounding the O.J. case, the victims, Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, were still just catalysts for a larger story.
