Beau Willimon Lays His 'Cards' on the Table
Austin Film Festival presents the showrunner on season two of the hit Netflix series
Screens Story  February 21, 2014, by Aleksander Chan
"...When Beau Willimon's adaptation of the Nineties BBC drama of the same name (which was based on the series of novels by Michael Dobbs) premiered last year with its David Fincher mood lighting, featuring marquee names, and on its exotic-by-comparison network, Netflix, it was dogged by comparisons to Mad Men or The Sopranos as a prestige drama of the streaming video age. That lumping together of Willimon's series with those shows wasn't so much a critical misfire as an honest mistake: In many ways, House of Cards passes the Prestige Drama Sniff Test, but when you consume the show as intended (ahem, "binge"), what you realize you're smelling is pure, unfermented cheese..."
