Did You Know?


The song playing in the background as Woodrugh looks for his missing motorbike, and while he is in the taxicab, is by Black Mountain and is titled, "Set Us Free." For reasons unknown, it never made it into the Season 2 official soundtrack album, "Nevermind." Black Mountain is also the name of the Defense contracting company that Woodrugh worked for in Iraq.

Katherine Davis: Velcoro's dirty. I want him. I thought I was clear on that. We got a crooked Vinci cop we can leverage. All the better. He's a man, for Christ's sake.
Detective Ani Bezzerides: Yeah, so what?
Katherine Davis: I'm not saying fuck him, but maybe let him think you might fuck him.

A kingpin and a patrolman walk into a club
6 July 2015 | by quincytheodoreSee all my reviews

The multi perspective tone has proved to be reasonably engaging. As the story delves further, the characters and the actors have grown more, both subtly and menacingly, in the bleak world. Visual of the episode compliments the diversity as well, although the case isn't that appealing. The money con lacks the direct intimate involvement, aside maybe for one of them, nevertheless this season has gotten some momentum.

Vince Vaughn fits the shoe of mafia boss Frank. The material gives him ample chance to showcase the moderately antagonistic role, but it's not just from the script. He displays appropriate mannerism and even his visage is slowly getting wearier. Colin Farrell as Velcoro also brings his character to life, mostly after getting shot at before.

He seems very detached and lacking any passion, yet he still clings to the case despite everything around him literally crumbling away. Taylor Kitsch is still a bit fickle. He has more spotlight this episode, even paired with Rachel McAdams since Velcoro is injured half the time, but he still looks like a tag-along. His back story is slowly revealed, yet it's not as intriguing as the others'.

The cinematography takes the series into multiple environments this time, from exquisite manor to downtown slum. It's a good effort in expanding the outlook with each scene presenting unique ambiance. If anything, season two has shown bigger scale.

The case, leaning towards money scam or political angle, might not be that involving, but the myriad of cast works in keeping the interest going through the case and investigation.
