Character Spotlight – True Detective’s Rust Cohle

by Elizabeth Gunto August 27th, 2014
That Matthew McConaughey could play a philosophical detective with a sordid past is a huge surprise. Until recently he's more known for being shirtless and than being an real actor. McConaughey's starring role in the 2013 drama Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor, showed that he could pull off films other than romantic comedies. But McConaughey's skill portraying Detective Rust Cohle on HBO's crime series True  Detective is still a revelation. Detective Cohle is an atheist who keeps a cross above his bed for mediation.  His is not a part that seems written for

Add It – HBO’s True Detective

The crime scene in the opening of HBO's True Detective could be an art installation. The murderer arranged his victim, a young prostitute, with such precision and care, you can assume that's how he wanted it to be seen. Two detectives, Rustin Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson), investigate the murder in 1995. Seventeen years later, new investigators interview the pair separately when, despite the assumed murderer being convicted, a victim is found styled in the same fashion as the girl years ago.

Police find the victim in a crop field far from any home, which speaks to the feel of

Delete It – The Night Shift Needs Medical Help

The Night Shift is an NBC Summer drama about the staff at a San Antonio Emergency Room.   For some reason, the brain trust at NBC thought that what was missing from the airwaves was one more drama about doctors (I can only guess that they couldn’t find another drama about lawyers to fill the time slot).   The show has gone through a long development, meaning it was the best of the bad options the network had available but never quite saw the light of day until this year.  The Night Shift is the third title attached to the series,

Toss Up: Garfunkel and Oates

IFC hosts the comedy/music duo Garfunkel and Oates in their new show of the same name, where Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci play situation comedy versions of themselves:  single comedians living in Los Angeles and dealing with its painful comedy scene. While in theory a sitcom, the show struggles to both plot out 30 minutes of airtime and work in the funny songs that made Garfunkel and Oates famous.

This is not to say the show isn't funny. Garfunkel and Oates, named after the less popular halves of two bands, wander around the city in a hip, Mod Cloth-draped daze, dating weirdos
