True Detective

I've started watching HBO's new show, True Detective and it is a dense, humid show.

From Adam Arkapaw's grimy cinematography, to the constantly sweaty appearances of both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and the swampy bayous of Louisiana, there is something about the style of this show that is truly transcendent and captures the mood and feel of the US south that I can't get over.

The above titles, directed by Patrick Claire, an artist I've been following for several years again gets to the core of this kind of a show.

And I have to give props to the sound designers and how they've mixed present day McConaughey's voice, it's so deep and baritone.  It's awesome.

That there's only 8 episodes in this series might be too few...
