True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

This season of True Detective has been unjustly maligned by many critics who have decided to ignore great performances, and the nearly identical tone to the beloved first season. Episodes like “Church In Ruins” go far in proving these criticisms as moot points. This episode is full of tension from the opening scene to the finale. “I have a sense of justice” Starting from where we left last episode we immediately go full tilt into the confrontation between Velcoro and Semyon. This scene is full of tension so rich it would make Alfred Hitchcock squeal in glee. The fact that both characters are seemingly having a normal...

True Detective: “Other Lives”

True Detective: “Other Lives”

After last week’s explosive episode, True Detective finally felt like it had hit the ground running—particularly after having spent half the season on character development and veiled clues. Ray, Ani, and Paul finally had a breakthrough in the investigation, leading to the pulse-pounding raid and shootout with Ledo Amarilla and his men. However, the dust didn’t settle quite as expected. Rather than picking up where it left off, “Other Lives” continues exactly 66 days after what has now been deemed “The Vinci Massacre.” Caspere’s murder case has been officially closed since the man believed to be responsible, Amarilla, is now...

True Detective: “Down Will Come”

True Detective: “Down Will Come”

For everyone who decided that this season’s True Detective was boring and lacked the substance of the last season, you are probably kicking yourselves right now because episode four had my jaw to the floor and my eyes streaming because I was afraid if I blinked, I would miss something. There are two moments in particular that stood out for me, one is pretty obvious but we’ll get to that, first I want to talk about Ani Bezzerides. Much like the first season, this season is dominated by a male cast. The women in season one were usually victims, journalists or sexual partners of the protagonists and season two is no different, all with the...

True Detective: “Maybe Tomorrow”

True Detective: “Maybe Tomorrow”

Not only was last night’s episode of True Detective a massive change of pace but it was a bit of precursor for how we, as an audience, are going to be played for the rest of the season. The question on a lot of people’s lips following episode three of this incredibly sprawling narrative piece is “who is the true detective?” We have three flawed detectives in play, each of them with their own personal demons and one of whom is severely compromised by past misgivings landing him in trouble. Each one is out to solve the crime at hand while simultaneously resolving matters in their personal lives that are the direct result of flaws in...

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

Holy shit. Last night’s True Detective was a shocker right?! Who saw that one coming? It’s gone all Game of Thrones on us and potentially killed off one of the main characters in episode two, which serves as a not-so-friendly reminder that this show can get incredibly dark and twisted at the flip of a switch. No one is safe, everyone has a secret and the city is an unforgiving pit of despair. The majority of the episode played out like any other, building character stories, opening doors, asking questions and widening the vice. The three detectives come together to hear the autopsy report for Ben Caspere, the man found dead at the end...

TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2 Premiere – “The Western Book of the Dead”

TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2 Premiere – “The Western Book of the Dead”

Honestly, it has been kind of hard starting off this review. We have already analyzed and pondered every frame of footage leading up to this premiere, so there is no need to speak volumes about the dark, brooding tone of this piece. It is the tone Nic Pizzolatto has set for this series and we go with it. There is also no need, at least for this writer, to reflect on or compare what we are about to witness to Season One. It has been established that this is an anthology series and we are starting from a clean slate with a new tale before us. All we can be sure of is that it will be more of a character study than a crime procedural and that...

True Detective Season Two: Trailers & Details

True Detective Season Two: Trailers & Details

In the official season two trailer of True Detective, we are introduced to four characters: one villain and what appear to be three good guys. Perhaps still waters run deep. We only see the tip of the iceberg in this trailer, leading us to believe that there’s a lot more to these characters than meets the eye. Each of them has a history, a backstory. Perhaps there’s something in the past that they all want to keep there. Sometimes, the sins of the past tend to catch up with you sooner or later. Let the countdown to the premiere begin!   “Sometimes your best self…..is your worst self.” Vince Vaughn portrays Frank Seymon, who...

What to Expect from True Detective Season Two

What to Expect from True Detective Season Two

The amount of information that has been drip fed to us following the breath-taking, gut-wrenching finale of the first season of True Detective has been incredibly minimal. With two teaser trailers, a handful of photos from the set and some very intriguing character posters, speculation as to what this second season is going to hold is only adding to the anticipation. We don’t know a lot, but what we do know is that Colin Farrell plays Detective Ray Velcoro, Vince Vaughn plays criminal Frank Semyon, Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, the County Sheriff, and Taylor Kitsch is Paul Woodrugh, the cop who discovers the body that kicks everything...
