‘True Detective 2×02: Night Finds You’ Review

29 June 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Captions: (Crickets chirping)

After a pilot episode with little to recommend it, ‘Night Finds You’ recaptures a bit of season 1′s driving-in-cars-shooting-shit character chemistry, meanders through introducing what might shape up into a compelling setting and plot, and then ends by swerving with alarming suddenness into what might be some honest to God interesting territory.

Ray Velcoro getting pumped full of buckshot in the episode’s final moments is so definitively framed that his survival would be a Dallas-sized lump of horseshit. The crow-masked man who does the deed, the kitchen sink filled to the brim by the slow accumulations of a leaky faucet, the golden oldies on the radio, the closet hiding what looks like a wiretap or a secret studio of some kind; it all comes together to make the last two minutes of this week’s True Detective feel like a reel from a lost David Lynch movie. »

This Is Why You Recognized That Creepy Psychiatrist on True Detective

29 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The second episode of True Detective season two introduced a handful of new characters, but the most memorable of the bunch might have been Dr. Pitlor. The off-putting psychiatrist was questioned by Ani (Rachel McAdams) and Ray (Colin Farrell) as they investigated the murder at the heart of the show. From his tinted glasses - inexplicably worn indoors - to his paisley ascot, pretty much everything about Dr. Pitlor screamed "huge creep." So why did he seem so familiar? Mystery solved: True Detective's Dr. Pitlor is played by Rick Springfield, '80s pop star extraordinaire and singer of "Jessie's Girl." Let's take a moment to enjoy some of his less disturbing work below. »

'True Detective' Podcast: Season 2, Episode 2 'Night Finds You'

29 June 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Is he or isn't he? That's the question "True Detective" fans are debating this morning following last night's shocking conclusion of season two, episode two's "Night Finds You." Taking a page out of the "Game Of Thrones" playbook, the final moments of the episode find Colin Farrell's Ray Velcoro shot twice at close range by the most deranged Big Bird ever. But is he really dead? Read More: Review & Recap: 'True Detective' Season 2, Episode 2, 'Night Finds You' That's where Brad from Rope Of Silicon and I kick off this week's podcast. We dig into that pivotal sequence as well as the developments in the investigation, Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) wielding his influence on Ray for his own ends, and the other twists and turns in "Night Moves You." The episode definitely kickstarts the season, brining tighter focus to the story, and more layers to these damaged characters. »

‘True Detective’ Shocker: Final Moments of Episode 2 Puts Major Character in Jeopardy

29 June 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Do not read any further if you have not watched Sunday’s June 29th episode of HBO’s “True Detective”) For fans and critics bemoaning a slow start to the second season of “True Detective,” the end of Sunday night’s second episode floored the gas pedal on the dark drama starring Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch. When we last left a group of world-weary investigators and a highway patrol cop (Farrell, McAdams and Kitsch), they begrudgingly assembled to solve the gruesome murder of a businessman tied to Vaughn’s shady land developer.

Did 'True Detective' Just Pull a 'Game of Thrones' With a Main Character?!

29 June 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

*Spoilers ahead from last night's "True Detective" Season 2*

Only two episodes of "True Detective" Season 2 have aired on HBO, and we're still trying to figure out the characters' names and motivations (beyond a lot of scowling). At this point, we're still following them as Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch. And after Episode 2, "Night Finds You," maybe there's no Colin Farrell anymore?

Farrell plays Detective Ray Velcoro, opposite McAdams as Detective Ani Bezzerides, Kitsch as Officer Paul Woodrugh and Vaughn as criminal entrepreneur Frank Semyon. "Night Finds You" ended with Farrell's Ray Velcoro shot multiple times by someone wearing a mask -- a black bird mask. And it's HBO. And a main character may or may not be dead. This is too close to "Game of Thrones" to ignore. Jon Snow just got stabbed by his fellow "crows" in the Season 5 finale and may or may not ever return. »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 2, "Night Finds You"

28 June 2015 9:06 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"True Detective" ups the ante in every way and settles into its comfortable procedural grove this week. Its season premiere may require more than one viewing to truly appreciate (having watched the episode again, I can say it does improve), but "Night Finds You" is full of all the elements that made the first season such a standout. The episode opens with Semyon (Vince Vaughn) concerned for his legacy. Subtlety is nowhere to be found as quick flashes of Semyon's large empty house are intercut with him lamenting the fact he and his wife Jordan (Kelly Reilly) do not have children. When Frank recalls his five days in the dark as a child and his terror at being locked in the basement, his desire for some sort of lasting contribution becomes clear. Semyon straddles the line between legitimacy and his gangster past for most of this hour and he seems »

The Podcast You Deserve: S2 E2 "Night Finds You"

28 June 2015 8:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The second episode of the second season of "True Detective" is on the books and we're back with the "True Detective" podcast, "The Podcast You Deserve", featuring myself, Brad Brevet, and Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist as we continue our recaps and reviews of each episode of this new season. The season two premiere was met with mixed reactions and even Kevin and I felt it was a little clunky (sort of like our first episode of this podcast), but the second episode definitely picks up steam and has a whopper of a final scene. Playing large roles in this episode are Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro and Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides on the side of the detectives and Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) on the other side of the law, though there's a little something to Frank that makes us wonder if by the end of this season will »

'True Detective': Fatal(?) Gunshots and More Reveals From Episode 2

28 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This post contains spoilers from episode two of HBO's True Detective.] The discussion of "Night Finds You," the second episode of True Detective's second season, needs to start at the very end. Sunday's episode ends with Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), following a tip in the death of Ben Caspere, getting shot by a man in some sort of bird headdress. The faceless gunman then stands over him and fires again. In most circumstances, it would be easy to write off Ray as a dead man. But it seems rather unlikely that the show would kill what is thus

Holy Cliffhanger, True Detective! That Was Not What We Were Expecting

28 June 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well that was unexpected.  The end of tonight's episode of True Detective took a little turn for the not so great when Ray (Colin Farrell) was gunned down by a guy in a bird mask (or some sort of half bird/half man creature) with a shotgun while doing a little side investigating for Frank (Vince Vaughn).   Right after Ray had learned that his ex-wife was filing for sole custody of their kid (who might actually be her rapist's kid), and then he talked about how the best way to get out of his problems would be to die, Frank asked/blackmailed him to go check out dead city manager Casper's second house, which was mainly used for sex purposes, in order to make sure there was no evidence of his »

True Detective’s Abigail Spencer on Gena and Ray’s Backstory, and Auditioning for Rachel McAdams’ Role

28 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Abigail Spencer is lost in Provence. “I don’t know what happened,” says the actress, who’s in Europe for a TV festival, via cell phone. “The French Gps in the car took us to the middle of nowhere.” Spencer clearly knows where she’s going in her career, however: She’s got key roles in two of the summer’s most anticipated shows: HBO’s True Detective and Sundance’s Rectify, which returns July 9. Spencer discussed playing Gena, the ex-wife of True Detective’s troubled cop, Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), their complicated backstory, and how she got the part.How did you work out the schedules to do both True Detective and Rectify? Honestly, I don’t even know how that happened. It was kind of magical. [Executive producer] Nic Pizzolatto offered me the part. He thought of me for it, and he’s good friends with Rectify’s producers. True Detective was so lovely. »

Review: 'True Detective' Season 2 Episode 2 'Night Finds You' Is For the Crows

28 June 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Immediate ReactionHoly smokes! Did "True Detective" just pull a "Children of Men" and kill off one of its main stars before we even reached Act II? When Ray (Colin Farrell) caught a bullet from the mask-wearing mystery man last seen driving Ben Caspere's body around SoCal, it seemed like something any TV detective worth the weight of his bulletproof vest could survive. But then he was shot square in the chest from point blank range, his body lying flat against the floor, sickly jerking as the ammunition slammed into him. Is there any way out of this? Well, sure. There are a number of theories in which Ray survived the surprising assault by the same shotgun-wielding killer who shot Ben Caspere's balls off  — drunken dream, staged murder scene, rubber bullets — but the shock of it all still helped "Night Finds You" end with a bang despite a persistent whimper throughout »

Review & Recap: ‘True Detective’ Season 2, Episode 2, ‘Night Finds You’

28 June 2015 6:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The world-weary Vinci detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) is a piece of shit, but he may be just as disgusted with himself as everyone around him is. And this comes to a head in episode two. One second Velcoro is encouraging his son Chad’s self-esteem and then the next—after drinking himself silly from the self-loathing of intimidating a journalist and being the stooge for a crooked businessman—he is on the edge of humiliating his son in front of his entire school. Armed with good intentions and gifts, but inebriated, Velcoro quickly turns hostile when he discovers the sneakers he bought for his son were ruined by school bullies. Frightening his already anxious boy, sickening his ex-wife’s current boyfriend and new father figure, as we saw in episode one, “The Western Book Of The Dead,” Velcoro didn’t just stop there. Fueled by booze, self-hatred and a »

Sense8, Ep. 1.01 to 1.06: A moving, ambitious sci-fi series

27 June 2015 12:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sense8, Season 1, Episodes 1 to 6

Created by The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski

Premiered June 5th, 2015 on Netflix

Telling eight stories at once is naturally going to require some narrative shortcuts, which is the conundrum faced by the Netflix sci-fi series Sense8. In telling the story of eight people (plus Jonas and Angel, whose roles in all of this isn’t totally clear yet), the showrunning Wachowski siblings (along with their creative partner, Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski) can’t afford to give each arc the time one would expect would be needed to make a drama compelling.

The problem is similar to what the Wachowskis faced in their Cloud Atlas adaptation; and, as they did in that film, their genre filmmaking skills allow them to rise to the challenge. The first half of Sense8 is strongest when it relies on the Wachowskis’ ability to make an action scene instantly exciting. »

Limping, Lisping and Lobstering: Escaping Yorgos Lanthimos’ Hotel of Purity

25 June 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back when Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos first clambered barefaced upon the international stage with his daring Dogtooth, quite a few hastened to mention its striking resemblance to Arturo Ripstein’s similarly self-contained The Castle of Purity, made some 35 years earlier. In the wake of his first English-language effort The Lobster, one might even go further and compare all that Lanthimos has done thus far to Ripstein’s film: the imposed isolation behind walls that are both physical and psychological, creating a world whose structure is founded upon seemingly intransgressible rules and boundaries. Despite the jump in locale and language, The Lobster is very much a continuation or extension of the themes found in Dogtooth: the sequestered family abode is replaced by an isolated hotel complex; the overprotective father by a domineering hotel manager – the brilliant Olivia Colman. Perhaps the most significant difference, at least on first glance, is that »
