True Detective Episode 1.7 Recap

March 3, 2014

Disguised as a lit trail of gunpowder leading to a jam-packed keg, True Detective is a thread of black yarn that continues to burn throughout the crowded firework factory that Nic Pizzolatto has made for us, expertly missing all the fuses and gas cans that lesser shows would ignite.

True Detective Episode 1.6 Recap

February 24, 2014

For the first time in True Detective’s run we have been left with an image, burdened with a heavy past, moving toward a future not known by anyone inside the show’s delicate clockwork collage. It’s no longer a matter of whodunit, it’s a matter of who’s-gonna-do-it. Continue reading

February 17, 2014

True Detective Episode 1.4 Recap

February 10, 2014

True Detective has become like H.P. Lovecraft framed through the window of an all Bunk and McNulty version of The Wire: exploring ideas of faith, madness, brutality and obsessive self-destruction read with the cop-speak language that TV has made us experts in through decades of crime dramas and police procedurals.

True Detective Episode 1.3 Recap

January 26, 2014

True Detective Episode 1.2 Recap

January 19, 2014

By the close of the second episode of HBO’s True Detective, it seems like the stinger to each installment will be to remind the audience that there’s an actual overarching case that needs to be solved and not just an almost painfully intimate portrait of two men that are slowly breaking down. Then again, “Seeing Things” tends to suggest that the very case and how it ultimately turns out will ultimately come down to the personalities of the people trying to solve it rather than the particulars.

Out of the Furnace Review

December 5, 2013

Out of the Furnace aims for a character driven drama, but despite having an excellent cast of actors giving all they can to the project, there’s not much that can be done to give the movie any kind of pulse or momentum. It’s dull and plodding when the material suggests something with much higher emotional stakes. It’s the perfect example of a film that’s too subdued for its own good. Continue reading

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

November 20, 2013

With a director more accustomed to shooting good looking and well handled action sequences, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is just a slight notch better than its predecessor, but nearly every other positive and negative from the first film remains exactly the same. Continue reading
