This was an absolute stunner! The Sackler family makes Tony Montana look like a choirboy in the dope dealing world. The opioid epidemic that ravaged North America especially the Appalachian territories is brought to the screen with tremendous power by the cast and crew behind this limited series. Michael Stuhlbarg is super creepy as the super villain Richard Sackler. A malevolent creature like no other. Michael Keaton in one of his best performances maybe ever! He's so quietly moving it would be a crime not to recognize him for his work as Dr. Finnix. Young Kaitlyn Dever again gives a superb performance as a young coal miner addicted to the world's most dangerous drug: oxycontin. Magnificently written too in my opinion. Loved it.
