TV REC’ – TOP OF THE LAKE

By 18th April 2017Uncategorised

“All you hear are your own crazy thoughts. Like a river of shit, on and on. See your thoughts for what they are. Stop your helping. Stop your planning. Give up! There’s no way out. Not for others, not for you. We are living out here at the end of the road, the end of the earth in a place called paradise. How is it going? Perfect? No. You are madder than ever.” GJ

I think that quote could be useful at the sign-up pages of social media sites. And though I haven’t watched much on the screen this year, I broke my fast for Top of the Lake. A six part thriller set in New Zealand that’s been out for a few years now. But if, like me, you’re late to the party, it’s a strange and compelling drama with the most awe-inspiring locations. A mix of a gritty crime mystery but on the set of a fairy tale … with the photography of a nature documentary.

Excited to read that a second series is planned.
