    Amazing acting from Mark Ruffalo!! Deserves an Emmy nod. Beautifully shot by Derek Cianfrance. Keeps the viewer wanting more, despite being overall depressing story.

    HBO's production is relentlessly grim, a smothering tapestry of insanity, nutballery, and emotional and physical brutality.

    It won't cheer you up. However, its unrelenting misery did not stop it being almost exhilarating to watch, mainly because of beautiful, near-perfect performances by Mark Ruffalo.

    Empathy is what keeps this harrowing story from being just a wallow in misery. [Dominick's] journey of self-discovery, which includes a crusade that began in childhood to learn his birth father's identity, feels absolutely, dramatically true. [11 - 24 May 2020, p.6]
