Power: “No Friends On The Street” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Power is about the uncomfortable relationship between fantasy and reality. Ghost feeds his customers’ high-life fantasies at Truth, with VIP treatment and cascading Ciroc, then indulges them further with top-shelf cocaine. But the glamorous life comes with some awfully ugly consequences: relationship instability, addiction, legal woes, financial ruin, and overexposure to the music of Pitbull. Part of what makes Power such a tragedy is that Ghost isn’t just the owner; he’s also a client. He’s every bit as addicted to a fantasy as his customers, one with grave consequences not only for him, but for his family and for anyone connected to his massive empire. And like any addict, Ghost goes to great extremes to justify his reckless behavior and keep the good times rolling.

The story is too old to be commented.
