Checking In on True Detective
HBO’s dark new crime thriller, True Detective, aired its second, just-as-jarring-as-the-first episode yesterday evening.
And while most critics’ interests have been piqued by the series’ top-shelf talent (see: McConaughey, Harrelson) and grizzly content (see: dead prostitutes, police brutality), we were also struck by the show’s characteristically bleak wardrobe. So far it’s been a lot of muted tones, loose-fitting suits and sweat-soaked undershirts, making one thing perfectly clear: this may also be the ’90s, but it’s a hell of a ways from the in-your-face prep of The Wolf of Wall Street.
Now, have a look for yourselves at True Detective’s sinister stylings.
