Movie Thoughts: The Many Saints of Newark

I haven’t seen any establishment articles written on it yet, but I believe the era known as Peak TV ended in 2019. Its best shows were wrapped up with some hastily-made movies (El Camino and the Deadwood movie), and reigning champion Game of Thrones crashed and burned in such spectacular fashion we’re unlikely to see anything like it ever again.

The Many Saints of Newark could be Peak TV’s epilogue. It’s fitting that the last show to get a wrap-up movie is the one that started it all.
