On the topic of True Detective, the scene above is a good example of why the show is so amazing. It’s not really a spoiler, but I suggest you wait to watch it if you haven’t seen episode 3 already. Because it’s so much more effective in context.

Beyond Matthew McConaughey giving what is perhaps his best performance to date (including the film for which he’ll likely win an Oscar), the entire sequence is a great set up to the payoff. And it’s largely because of the score.

This is not uncommon in cinema, but I have a hard time remembering a television show that uses a score so effectively. This is Darren Aronofsky and Christopher Nolan territory. It’s absolutely haunting.

~ Rarely have two actors on a television show been so damn watchable, not only for their outstanding acting, but because their characters are so damaged and yet so engaging. The intriguing time-shifting plot and the perfect accompanying music are more reasons to appreciate this intelligent production. 

Until I saw the movie ‘Mud’, and then ‘The Dallas Buyers Club’, I had no idea that Matthew McConaughey was so very talented. In True Detective, he gives us an acting performance that approaches sheer brilliance.
