"I am also a big fan of this show, because of Fincher and the detective work, even if the show skirts very close sometimes to murderer fetish..." - Jono

"I love this show. I binged 7 of the 9 episodes and could have finished but I wanted to savor it a little longer. It's such an engrossing show and beautifully filmed" -Raul

I've met him. He's just a super chill dude.

He was freeing himself from a glamorous strait jacket as part of his lesser known career as an escape artist.

He just finished a break dance sequence and this was his celebratory end-pose...obviously.

I love how unabashedly in love with film Jenkins is on Twitter. So many directors play it cool and he’s just always fanboying out and hyping other people’s work. Seems like genuinely an awesome person. And he loves Wong Kar-Wai (obviously) and that’s always a sign someone is cool/good/brilliant.

barry jenkins is just the best person, it's that simple. And it's his reason for doing all the adorable things he does

He can make Beale Street talk but he can make the red carpet SING...

Couldn't help it.
