True Detective: how we made the most talked-about TV show of the year

21 March 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The silent spaces and spooky folk crafts of backwoods Louisiana get as much screen time as Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in director Cary Fukunaga's murder mystery

More: Fukunaga on filming that tracking shot

If you were looking to name the most talked-about programme on TV right now, you wouldn't have to be an obsessive policeman with a deductive intuition to alight on True Detective. Praise has been lavished on Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in their roles as Louisiana state detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle. The mystery, in which the pair investigate a ritual murder in the bleak wilds of the bayou, has prompted much speculation and theorising. Some of us have even admired the folk crafts (wherever the detectives go they stumble over piles of spooky wooden icons). What binds the serial together, though, and elevates True Detective into truly compelling television is its eerie tone and complex structure. »

How True Detective’s Cinematographer Got These 9 Shots

19 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

These days, most post-tv episode reactions lean toward “I can't believe that happened!” rather than “How beautiful was that wide shot!” With True Detective, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto wanted both. So he got Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and also tapped Adam Arkapaw, the Australian cinematographer behind the critically acclaimed crime dramas Animal Kingdom and The Snowtown Murders. It helped that Arkapaw was coming off Jane Campion's Top of the Lake, another transcendent small-screen experience. Shooting True Detective entirely on Kodak film (save for episode four's momentous six-minute-long shot that required digital just to pull off the run time), Fukunaga and Arkapaw unraveled a very cinematic television saga. Behind every hair-brained Yellow King theory, there was consideration for light, color, composition, texture, and camera movement.Just this week, Fukunaga told the Guardian, "Before I even started working on True Detective, I made a point of telling »

Required Reading: Fighting Autism with Disney and Charting Stardom for Lupita Nyong’o

10 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Reaching My Autistic Son Through Disney” — This intimate piece from Ron Suskind at The New York Times Magazine may as well have been sponsored by Kleenex. Poignant, personal and vulnerable, it’s a beautiful story told with endless compassion. If you only read one of the links today… “Somewhere it’s always Groundhog Day” — Kristin Thompson shares a letter from Harold Ramis and some thoughts/quibbles with film analysis. “What if Lupita Nyong’o got the same roles as Jennifer Lawrence” — Monika Bartyzel at The Week charts an imaginary, role-diverse future for the newly crowned Oscar winner. A future that feels a little fantastical to those of us who are more cynical. “Thinking as Historical Spectators” — Peter Labuza at To Be Cont’d makes a shrewd case for letting films of the past »

True Detective Season Finale Review: “Form and Void” (Season 1, Episode 8)

9 March 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is hard to recall the last time a television series has gripped the cultural consciousness so quickly, spawning memes, a sprawling amount of Internet speculation and commentary, as well as divisive conversations about gender roles on television (check out Emily Nussbaum’s harsh, but terrific piece in The New Yorker for more on that) as much as True Detective. At that rate, a season finale that was anything less than the finest 60 minutes of television would be doomed to succeed. Alas, the last of eight episodes from Nic Pizzolatto’s first anthology is a solid, but not quite shattering hour of television. Nevertheless, it is filled with the key elements that any True Detective viewer would hope for: strong acting, haunting music and art direction, sublime camerawork, unbearable suspense and a smattering of dark humour.

Since its start, True Detective has done so much to thwart our expectations of »

‘True Detective’ Creator Nic Pizzolatto Talks Season 1 Finale and Season 2 Changes

7 March 2014 9:44 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

As HBO’s remarkable Southern-noir drama True Detective is about to close out its first season, there is plenty of story to wrap up and a single hour of television left to do so. A devoted following sprung up around the show seemingly from the moment it debuted, and the promise of an eight-episode, self-contained story in its debut season has kept fans focused on the mystery behind the Yellow King.

Created by writer Nic Pizzolatto (The Killing) with director Cary Fukunaga (Sin NombreJane Eyre) helming all eight season 1 episodes, True Detective explores terrain that seems familiar on paper, but is full of surprises, not the least of which are ...

Are You Into Cary Fukunaga Yet? You Should Be

5 March 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's not anyone's fault. The Yellow King mystery has taken up a lot of our time, and time is a flat circle anyway, and there is so much other weird True Detective stuff to talk about that something was bound to get left behind. But we, as a nation, have not spent enough time discussing Cary Fukunaga, and that must change. He is a talented director; he has excellent taste; he is … exceedingly handsome. Sorry to be so superficial, but like, have you seen pictures of this man? He is "Ryan Gosling but with even better bone structure"–level handsome. This is a man you should know about! Here is a user's guide.He's an award-winning director. Fukunaga's feature-film debut, Sin Nombre, won him the best director award at Sundance 2009. (He wrote the script, too.) He also won a number of short film prizes while in film-school at Nyu. Here »

Matthew McConaughey on 'True Detective,' His Pal Woody, McConaissance

3 March 2014 10:03 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Last night, for the first time in several months, Matthew McConaughey wasn't at home watching his favorite show on TV: HBO's True Detective, in which he stars as the brilliant but deeply troubled homicide cop Rustin "Rust" Cohle. "I'm doing what the public's doing," he says. "I received all eight episodes, but I said, 'You know what? I'm gonna check them out each Sunday night and then sit on each episode for a week.' I've found myself going back and watching each one of them about three times during »

The Dark Thrills of 'True Detective'

28 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Oh, yeah, Rustiiiiin Cohhhhhhle," drawls a delighted Matthew McConaughey. It's the day after the annual Oscar luncheon, where the nominees mingle and have a group photo taken, but he's not talking about Dallas Buyers Club. Today, his mind is on Rustin "Rust" Cohle, the brilliant but deeply troubled Louisiana homicide cop he plays opposite Woody Harrelson in True Detective, the stunner of a debut show from a former college professor with little TV experience named Nic Pizzolatto. McConaughey was the first actor to sign on to True Detective (the first »

True Detective Director Cary Fukunaga Developing A Soldier Of The Great War with Edward Norton; Discusses His It Adaptation and Pompeii

26 February 2014 3:20 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Cary Fukunaga is rightfully garnering an intense amount of attention as his HBO series True Detective continues to mesmerize week after week.  In an atypical move for television, Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of True Detective, and the result of his collaboration with writer Nic Pizzolatto is truly stunning.  Fukunaga already has two features under his belt—Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre—and he’s developing a number of others, but in a recent interview he revealed another project that he’s been working on with Edward Norton that would see him tackle the Great War.  He also provided a bit of trivia by noting that Alejandro González Iñárritu was briefly attached to direct True Detective before he came aboard. Hit the jump for more, including Fukunaga’s brutally honest thoughts on Pompeii and an update on his two-part It adaptation. Fukunaga is currently preparing his next feature, the »

Cary Fukunaga won't direct 'True Detective' Season 2

25 February 2014 10:15 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Just like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, director Cary Fukunaga won't be returning to "True Detective" for Season 2. The "Sin Nombre" and "Jane Eyre" director helmed all eight episodes of "True Detective" Season 1, but he'll be moving on to a new TV show next.

Deadline reports Fukunaga will at least return as executive producer again for "True Detective's" sophomore season. Creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is also returning to write Season 2. 

Fukunaga's directorial style has been a large part of what's made "True Detective" such a fast hit. For instance, his 6-minute long shot in episode 4 "Who Goes There?" had viewers talking for days. Here's hoping that whoever HBO taps to direct Season 2 has the same sort of distinctive and impressive visual style.

Fukunaga isn't done with television, though. He sold a six-figure pitch to Fox for a drama "set in a contemporary wartime context." He will act as »

'True Detective' Director Cary Fukunaga Has Untitled War Project In the Works at Fox

25 February 2014 9:02 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Needless to say, "True Detective" director Cary Fukunaga is on a roll right now. As that eight-episode HBO series unspools with many a fervent admirer (and a few dissenters), Fukunaga has sold a six-figure pitch to Fox. The project is untitled and set during contemporary wartime; Nicole Riegel, a fellow Sundance lab alum like Fukunaga, is set to write it. Fukunaga will both direct and produce. Asides from helming all eight episodes of "True Detective," Fukunaga also has the solid 2011 "Jane Eyre" adaptation and brilliant debut "Sin Nombre" on his feature resume. Riegel's script "Dogfight" made it to this year's Black List.  »

Fukunaga Dials Back On "True Detective"

25 February 2014 9:01 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Cary Fukunaga has scored a bunch of praise for his work directing all episodes of HBO's currently airing and highly acclaimed "True Detective" series.

Will he back? Sort of. Fukunaga will stay on with the anthology series, but in an executive producer capacity only. How much further he will be involved in the show's second season remains to be seen.

Fukunaga has also sold an untitled pitch to 20th Century Fox which Nicole Riegel will pen. That project has a "contemporary wartime context".

The "Jane Eyre" and "Sin Nombre" director also has "Beasts of No Nation," "Noble Assassin" and a two-film adaptation of Stephen King's "It" on his schedule.

25 February 2014 7:49 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

True Detective is the best show currently on TV, and part of the reason for that is director Cary Fukunaga, who helmed all eight episodes of the season.  Hopefully, fans of True Detective have rushed out to check out his two excellent features Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre, and they'll look forward to his upcoming projects.  His next projects is the African child soldier drama Beasts of No Nation starring Idris Elba, and he's also attached to a two-film adaptation of Stephen King's It as well as an adaptation of Paul Kix's World War II book Noble Assassin.  According to Deadline, Fukunaga will be adding another war story to his slate after preemptively selling an untitled pitch to fox.  The only details about the project are that "it’s set in a contemporary wartime context" and will be written by Nicole Riegel.

True Detective – TV review | Sam Wollaston

22 February 2014 3:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Could be Woody Harrelson, could be Matthew McConaughey. Or could the real star of True Detective be Louisiana?

A few things – good things, there are only good things – about True Detective (Saturday, Sky Atlantic).

Intrigue

On one level, it's a cracking murder mystery. A woman's body is found next to a burning sugar cane field, under a big old tree, surrounded by (and also wearing) weird stuff that points to some kind of dark symbolic significance – a crown of leaves, deer antlers, a twig pyramid that may or may not be a devil trap. It's unlikely to be the first time this killer has struck. Won't be the last either, unless they get him.

Sure, there's the odd cliche of the genre – a pair of mismatched cops, with difficult home lives (or a total lack of a home life in the case of one), drink, drugs, and more. But then »

Five Episodes In, All Caught Up with HBO's 'True Detective'

18 February 2014 12:24 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The fifth episode, "The Secret Fate Of All Life", of HBO's eight-part cop drama "True Detective" aired this past Sunday and I've just now caught up with the first five hours of what is an excellent mini-series. Set in 2012, the series begins as one-time partners in Louisiana's Criminal Investigation Division, Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughy), recount a high-profile and macabre murder investigation from 17 years ago. As they tell their story, the scene shifts back in time to 1995. The reason for the questioning comes about as a new case resembles the 17-year-old murder, a case thought to be solved, opening new possibilities and an endless amount of questions, none more pressing than to wonder "Who can you really believec" Written by novelist Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre), the series is utterly compelling, largely as a result of the wealth of »

Stephen King’s ‘It’ Will Be Goonies-Esque

17 February 2014 10:31 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director Cary Fukunaga really made an impact on teh cinematic world with his film Sin Nombre, but it’s his latest stint as the director of incredible TV show True Detetctive starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson that’s cemented his name on the map. As Collider sat down to speak with the director about the show, they asked a few questions concerning the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s It. Although previously made into a fantastic mini-series with Tim Curry fantastically capturing demonic clown Pennywise, it has never made it to theatres. Fukunaga’s adaptation will be a two-parter for the cinema and he also dropped some info during his interview:

I am in the midst of rewriting the first script now. We’re not working on the second part yet. The first script is just about the kids. It’s more like Goonies meets a horror film.
