THE KNICK Review: Clive Owen Leads Steven Soderbergh’s Gruesome But Immersive Hospital History

The new Cinemax series  The  Knick , from creators/executive producers Jack Amiel and Michael Belger and director/executive producer Steven Soderbergh, takes a very old idea and gives it a new spin.  The irony is, it does so by going to the past.  The show focuses on New York City’s Knickerbocker Hospital starting in 1900, a popular time period on television at the moment ( Boardwalk Empire ,  Copper ,  Downton Abbey ), as well as a popular subject for a series (that being a medical procedural).  But the pairing of the two makes  The Knick ‘s story something unique, and its singular artistic vision, under the direction of Soderbergh, illuminates the world beautifully.  Hit the jump for more.
