Kidman is scary in this one. Scary because I know that person. There is a fair amount of confusion going on because it reveals itself very gradually. The interplay between the characters is quite complex and compelling. Keeps you guessing.
An utterly compelling and skillfully crafted crime drama, but it had the potential to be more. The interesting ideas - the autobiographical elements with Kidman as Campion, the queasy cafe scenes, the euro/asian clash of the brothel - dissappear as traditional tv crime tropes take up all the time in the second half.
