Many Saints Of Newark (HBO Max):

A look at the formative years of New Jersey gangster Tony Soprano.

Well, here it is, finally. And for the first 3/4 of the movie, a solid MEH. The last 1/4 of the movie, the pieces fell together and was really good. The last time I had that feeling watching a movie was “Burn After Reading.” The light bulb came on during the last act(s). It all came together. Vera Fermiga and Ray Liotta were outstanding in their roles, I will say that without hesitation.

Definitely worth a watch if you loved the Sopranos, take a chance if you simply liked the Sopranos. It wasn’t the blockbuster I expected, but it was not a waste of time, either.

Thoughts on the younger Gandoldfini playing younger Tony?
