Justin Cimino (Screech): For me there’s just no question. "The Sopranos" had the best TV theme ever: "Woke Up This Morning" by Alabama 3. I can't think of many things cooler than Tony Soprano cruising through New Jersey, smoking a cigar, as the theme blared, "Woke up this morning/Got yourself a gun." Let's just say when I try to recreate it all in my own car, it's not nearly as cool.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
