Expert Review Treme: The Complete First Season - DVD Review
By: Nick Venable Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 3/31/2011 9:26 PM
No one mentions New Orleans anymore without Hurricane Katrina taking over the conversation. Defining tragedy in every sense, it was a disaster that garnered as much ire towards human elements as towards the natural ones. Washington D.C. almost gave the city the pink slip, and then what would David Simon have followed up Generation Kill with? Wasn't the government thinking about this whenever proper levee construction was avoided in the first place, and barely anybody came to help all the dying people? We like our comments spicy here in South Louisiana. ...read the full review

Slant Magazine 10 of 10
...Treme is hypnotically entertaining and, with a lushness even to the muddied floors of abandoned... As with all of Simon's shows, there's an understanding that this is how people really talk-directly, sloppily, or jangled as that might be. Nailing these verbal rhythms is especially important for a show about music: It's not a matter of playing notes, it's about what you put into them. And Treme puts everything into every scene. The camerawork is rich and the direction squeezes every nuance from the actors. The city's history has been painstakingly researched and effortlessly inserted into the writing. As a result, the moments?or notes?that make up this show are all that much richer, that much livelier. This also grants the show a special sort of shorthand, one that is used to communicate a great deal in musical montages (establishing shots, one might say, of the soul), but also in the sorts of quick scenes that a large ensemble show requires to advance all of the subplots without running into a wall of exposition. Toni warns Davis, "You do not motherfuck the National Guard." His half-broken reply: "I just want my city back." Our trust in the creators also allows Treme to riff (as jazz must), which leads to the sort of inventive scenes not usually found on television.... - Aaron Riccio

Newsday 10 of 10
...It'll be fun to see the great disconnect between the critical and viewer reception to "Treme." The former will fawn. The latter will yawn. In fact, what Simon is asking everyone to do is scrub their minds clean of all images, impressions and biases related to New Orleans, pre- or post-Katrina. With "Treme," he and Overmyer are rebuilding that picture for them, frame by frame. It's a methodical and pointillist process, requiring patience (on your part) and time. Stories, per se, don't "pop," but accrete; the narrative rhythm takes time to build and come into focus. Characters and their lives slowly become whole, then utterly real. This is often more like documentary-style narrative - think Frederick Wiseman, or Barbara Kopple, or, yes, David Simon of "The Wire" than straight TV entertainment...Give "Treme" all the time it needs. This is a spectacular new series, with some stunning performances - Pierce, Peters, Zahn, in particular - and gorgeous music. You'll become hooked. - Verne Gay
