Not many people can morph into characters and make you believe that you are watching real life. But Michael K. Williams does exactly that! Simply brilliant in everything that he does because of an understanding of the character. What a talent!

Omar is one of the most impactful characters in any movie or series I have seen. The Wire to me is the best series of all time. It kept you captivated. You didn't know what would happen next. Yet, it was meticulous, and smooth progressing. A lot of psychological, philosophical games, and of course socially driven.
