It’s always good news when talented directors agree to do crime shows. I’ve been a fan of Jane Campion since the 1990s, and she did a great job with Top of the Lake. It’s a noir crime drama similar to The Killing, but one that focuses tightly on women’s issues and takes small town depravity to a whole new level. This series is not for children, not for the faint of heart, but haunting and truthful.
