Critic Reviews for A Poet in New York

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

You feel the actor inhabiting Thomas without judgment, without self-consciousness, baring the inner turbulence, the unmet hunger, the selfishness, the childishness, the arrogance, and the self-destructiveness all swimming around in his mind.

Anyone who watches won't soon forget A Poet in New York, one of the best things on television this year.

October 30, 2014 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The portrayal of Thomas' decline is visceral from the first moments to the last, evoking that same second-hand queasiness one experiences watching, say, Leaving Las Vegas.
