  3. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    This is a perfect example of what long form filmmaking can achieve. I'm still reeling from how well the narrative parts are put together. The writing nails its themes with laser precision, while never sacrificing dramatic complexity or being less than emotionally compelling. Performances are outstanding, Elisabeth Moss's wobbly accent notwithstanding, and the use of location approaches the best of Herzog's work.

  6. Adam GR's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    I can't help but think of Laura Palmer's younger New Zealand sister. I love the imagery of the opening scenes, there was something so intimate about that texting scene on the bus! The "cliff" scene grips you, and Mirrah Foulkes digs in deeper. I wish I knew exactly how to watch it...the American episodes not being the original episodes. There's nothing quite like a Campion story.

  9. vordven's rating of the film Top of the Lake

  10. felisaf's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    The story lingered for a long time after it ended. This was not a mere detective story, it's bigger than that.

  11. knockkneed's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    as far as tv goes, this one's special

  12. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Top of the Lake

  13. Didar Merve's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    What we call overrated. 2* for Matt's art directed and sons of anarchy rockstar sons.

  14. BLP's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    Beautiful setting and great mood but the characters are incredibly poorly written. Nothing more than cliché archetypes who often act in the most idiotic ways. The story really slowed down after a couple of episodes as well.

  15. Isa Reis's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    mixed feelings: a série está bem escrita e desenvolvida e tem excelente cinematografia. também está rodeada de momentos wtf, o que eu costumo apreciar, mas depois tem partes tão cliché, tão desamparadas de lógica, que nos fazem perder o interesse. a personagem principal é a maravilhosa elizabeth moss e adorei peter mullan - wow!

  16. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    This mini series can obviously hang with cinema in terms of production value. The suspense was alright in the first few episodes and all of the characters had something quite enigmatic about them. In a way it felt like a more elegant or toned down Twin Peaks. However, it was a little too easy to fit the pieces together.

  17. blyniukas's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    Some characters (or rather, one in particular) are strong and have depth and arouse interest. Others are just floating. And then there are some that are completely rotten in the sense that they are simple-minded, predictable, all black&white and just annoying. The writing is mostly unconvincing. The story repeats itself.. I expected a series much more emotionally intelligent coming from Jane Campion, to be honest.

  18. James Mackin's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    Very well done, I greatly enjoyed the light Twin Peaks undercurrent that was going on the whole time. The whole cast was fantastic, the writing was stellar, the directing, top notch. Fuck yeah.

  19. lepetitjermey's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    things never quite really took off did they

  20. boughtabride's rating of the film Top of the Lake

    not enough chars. it's an exercise in how patriarchal and misogyny legacy destroys and ruins from the inside and out. how and why can a 12 year old become pregnant? a subtle exploration of classism and racism in new zealand. every minute is a punch to the face to me. i felt like it was carefully picked and i was never given enough information even until the end. i'll never be able to watch it again i don't think.
