TV Series: "The Last Tycoon" (2016-2017)

75 years of the initial release of the unfinished novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940), "The Last Tycoon" TV series distributed by Amazon Studios and created by Billy Ray, who mainly made his living with screen writing since 1994 for Hollywood Studios and shared credits as a writer for some successful movies in the last five years as "The Hunger Games" (2012) and "Captain Phillips" (2013), building a solid characters' grit in the first two episode surrounding the power struggle between the character of Monroe Stahr, performed respectively, yet too much of a stare, actor Matt Bomer and the studio magnate character of Pat Grady, portrayed by no further grief nor struggle sharing, actor Kelsey Grammar to additionally share in times of leisure with his wife, played by Rosemarie DeWitt and the character of his daughter, giving face by actress Lily Collins, who had been able to round-up the all too straight storyline of running a movie studio by acting with, just before WW2-raging in Europe, arriving alien artists in Hollywood; here creator Billy Ray skillfully written in real-life characters of director Fritz Lang (1890-1976) and actress Marlene Dietrich (1901-1992) in order to show the discrepancy between world apart of handling story and character in film, before living out fantasies in private as well, making the passion for the artform one whole experience in life.

"The Last Tycoon" (2016) strikes with elegant and excellent production design by Patrizia von Brandenstein, which are of cinematographic use in Episode one and two directed by Billy Ray, who seems to improve his directing skills in visual eye and interactive beat work since his last picture "Secret In Their Eyes" (2015), a remake of "El secreto de sus ojos" (2009) directed by Juán José Campanella and based on the novel "La pregunta de sus ojos" (2005) by Eduardo Sacheri. Nevertheless the directorial vision differs from episode three with switching to close-to incompetent director, when major failures in costume design and overall non-smoking environment becomes evident, starting to distract bumpy story developments centralizing a major loan from the another real-life character of Louis B. Mayer (1884-1957) at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios to the fictitious movie studio Brady American, led by Pat Brady and Monroe Stahr, who fight for new innovative pictures under immigrated Directors to be made with fresh faces, here given part by actress Dominique McElligott, who seems out of place as the new shining starlet of Hollywood's golden era and further to be the relentless love interest of the character of Monroe Stahr, who does not shy away to engage to her and fight off the drunkard of a former agent, when finally in episode seven some signs of life returns this television series, which has been cut short to a mini series, concluding with episode nine again under the direction of creator Billy Ray, making "The Last Tycoon" (2016) worth a watch for a weekend while because it already comes to an satisfactory end, but no more.
