    We Own This City

    ★★½

    Does not live up to the art of The Wire, but does explicate many key ideas of The Wire. It’s like a documentary that’s 99% reenactment and 1% B-roll, but it quadruples in value once the characters start talking about the consent decree.

    The type of series you can’t soundly argue against, even if by David Simon standards it’s straight-up terribly dramatized. Still essential viewing for making sense of this country leading up to June 2020.

    The stretch of scenes between Alan Weeks hopping into the sunroof of a moving car and the passel of pantsed dudes standing at the bar, fucking hell. Would trade my brother for a sequel to this.
