The Upcoming and the Underrated

Here is the new trailer for a HBO series coming up, True Detective.  Harrelson and McConaughey sounds like a great pairing to me. Harrelson, who is always brilliant, plays detective partner to McConaughey, who is best in grim roles such as his characters in Mud and Reign of Fire. These darker American tales that take place in desolate areas of the country fascinate me. The grey lighting and stripped pine in winter, the thick almost inaudible accents of the characters, is all so earthy and honest that one can’t deny how fascinating it is. The feel of True Detective reminds me of the Sundance Festival’s Best Picture Winner a few years back, and what you might not know, the film that really started J Law’s career. If you like the first trailer, check out Winter’s Bone for what is one of the most brilliant, underrated films in the past decade.
