New crime/drama/thriller series, Black Bird has Taron Egerton as Jimmy Keene, a man sentenced to 10 years in a minimum-security prison. A sentence that could be reduced to zero, if he’d just do one not quite so little thing.

Elicit a confession from Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser,) a suspected serial killer so that the FBI can find the bodies of as many as eighteen women.

I can’t even begin to guess if Keene will get out of this alive, especially knowing how prisonguards in TV shows and movies tend to stir up trouble and inappropriately exercise their power. Then there’s the assumption that the FBI care whether Keene survives. I mean, he does seem to be, you know, a full-on criminal.

I’m into this because of the cast and this rather well-edited trailer, even if it is tinged with some sadness since Liotta is no longer with us.

I see a pair of perfectly rich roles for Egerton and Hauser, plus some incredibly tense scenes coming our way. Scenes that are ideal for fans of great prison dramas and mob/crime stories.

Greg Kinnear, Ray Liotta, Sepideh MoafiTrazi Lashawn, Christopher B. DuncanJake McLaughlin, Robert Diago DoQui, Alexander Babara, Cecilia Leal and Rachel Whitman Groves also star.

Black Bird Release Dates: July 8th, 2022, Apple TV+

Happy Film Loving

    1. Agreed, Apple TV+ is focusing a lot on high quality content. My favourite thing they’ve done so far is the first seasons of Ted Lasso and The Morning Show. There’s still more I have to see though, just as soon as I make the time.🤓

    1. what on earth do you mean? 😁
      He’s certainly delivered some great performances so far, and it looks as though this will be added to that list. I look forward to hearing him speak some more using that very specific voice.

    1. Nightmares are indeed a possibility. But also, yes, Liotta. His words at the start are just so heartbreaking. All the emotion in those few words had me hooked.

      I’m also interested because of how different this role is for Egerton, who was first introduced to me and most of the world in quite the glorious fashion in Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014).

  1. I’ll probably watch this one. Have you seen Kingdom, the MMA series with Frank Grillo? Hauser plays Keith in it and I think he would make a good psycho/serial killer in this one.
