Nic Pizzolatto might be the hottest writer in Hollywood at the moment.
His new HBO series, True Detective, will be the talked about serial for 2014. Emphasis on “serial,” because the show follows the diabolical exploits of a serial killer in and around the swamps and bayous of Louisiana.
Matthew McConaughey will be as lauded for his role as Rust Cohle as any other, including his Dallas Buyer’s Club gig. His character slowly unravels while investigating murders that defile any sense of rational perception.
Thusly, the tagline: “Man Is the Cruelest Animal.”
