Re: True Detective

Yes, only two episodes in, and his character is already multi-layered, very deep and fascinating. Excellent acting, fuck, he's overshadowing Woody, who's doing great, then you can imagine Matthew's swag.

Re: True Detective

Just watched the first two episodes of this in the last 16 hours, and I thank LC for helping me get hooked on another great series.

Seriously, folks, Matthew McConaughey has been on one of the best streaks of any film actor on the planet these last several years: The Lincoln Lawyer (2011) marked the turnaround, and he hasn't looked back. The Lincoln Lawyer, Bernie, Killer Joe (he gives a sensational Quentin Tarantino villain performance in a brutal William Friedkin film), The Paperboy (the film's not much but he's good), Mud (he owns it), Magic Mike, best thing about that film, Dallas Buyers Club and even his small but memorable role in The Wolf of Wall Street.

It's like the guy took a timeout after Ghosts of Girlfriends Past in 2009, and with some prodding from the director of The Lincoln Lawyer, decided to quit wasting what he's got. Or something, I don't know, but whatever he's doing, it's working.

I adored his philosophical pessimism talk in the car with Harrelson in the pilot, the conclusion to each episode so far has been positively chilling, compelling and makes me want to see the next episode ASAP. Love it.

Re: True Detective

When I first heard about the show would have never figured the H.P. Lovecraft/Chambers connection, but they clearly mention the King in Yellow so wondering if it will get supernatural or try to portray it realistically. Either way it's going to be a mindfuck, not sure how that will work in the anthology format, different generations or other characters all chasing the King in Yellow.


It's the right word. Jerkass.

Re: True Detective

Thought the second episode was better than the first. Like how Brother Mouzone is playing a supporting character.

He already has more character development in this than he did in the wire
