The Many Saints of Newark: A Review

The prequel to the Sopranos. I would have preferred if it were its own stand alone film, not beholden to keep referencing the series. The show does the racial conflicts in Newark in the 60s and 70s well.  As you would expect with a prequel, it gives the backstory on Tony's elders (it is really about Christopher's father and Alessandro Nivola just about steals the movie). It also addresses Tony's Faustian crisis of which direction he is ultimately going to go. We know how it is going to turn out, but it was a good ride getting there.  

Update: There are flaws in this show. I still liked it. I would have cut the narration from Christopher and the ham fisted ending.
