‘Dennis Potter’s remarkably intelligent transatlantic adaptation of his BBC serial turns the pitfalls of ‘Hollywoodisation’ into profit…[he locates] Arthur Parker’s grubby melodrama in the Chicago of the Depression, culling his liberating daydreams from not only the era’s popular music, but its even more culturally resonant musicals, recreated with both MGM opulence and biting Brechtian wit.’– Time Out
