Top of the Lake

Post by Harlowe » Sun Aug 18, 2013 9:07 am

Just finished this, it's a 6 part Australian-BBC mini-series, that was on Sundance, but is avail on Netflix now. It was good. I'd say VERY good, but it felt like the last episode had to wrap up too many things.

Kate Moss, Holly Hunter, David Wenham (Faramir!), and great supporting cast in general. It's a strange, slow burn, but such great acting you don't mind the pace. The only part that might be a bit of a let down is that they wrap things up at the end so quickly. It's also shot in New Zealand, so the landscape is fabulous.

Gahh, not Kate Moss - Elisabeth Moss of Mad Man.

92% with critics and 90% with viewers on Rotten Tomatoes btw.

Intriguing! Especially now that we've hit this weird limbo between Summer "meh" and Fall premieres.

Two episodes left to watch. Agghhhhhhhhhhhhh.... good stuff. The pacing is just what it needs to be. God, there are some skeezy, fucked-up people in this show. Seriously.

I know! I love how fucked up so many characters are - each in a really unique way.

Finished a little while ago. OMG, Faramir. w...t... f????

Everything did wrap up kind of quickly . . . I was wondering what happened with . . .
Hidden Information!
Johnno and Robin. I mean, that has to be some fracked up mental trauma there for both of them. Then again, Faramir (Al) could have falsified the DNA testing for the baby - being Matt's (and not his, or some other creepy roofie pedo). Maybe he falsified Johnno's last-minute deus ex machina paternity deal. And they never said if Robin really was Matt's, did they?
Holly Hunter and the storage bin ladies were pretty awesome, btw.
