REVIEW

One of the best productions of HBO, also with the most Dostoevsky-esque set of characters. Just the ability of the show to capture the different layers and grievances in the room and the amazingly depicted power struggles, all while the characters gracefully and somewhat psychotically travel across the yachts, the penthouses and hideouts.
