“Blurring lines between the sacred and profane has always been a specialty of Mr. Guirgis. He has a splendid ear for various languages of deception, and might even argue that all language is a form of deception.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

PW: The Deuce
NPR mentions The Deuce as one of the best shows of 2017.
There are so many ways a TV show about the genesis of the porn industry could have gone wrong. But David Simon, creator of The Wire, brought his eye for authenticity to a surprisingly compelling story: how X-rated films moved from under-the-counter illegality to a multi-million-dollar business. James Franco got loads of attention playing twin brothers at the center of the prostitution and bar scene in 1970s-era Manhattan, but it’s Maggie Gyllenhaal’s work as a pimp-less streetwalker determined to become a porn director that gives the show its beating heart. — Eric
