MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film True Detective: Season Three

More interesting as a rumination on aging than as another procedural crime series, but not that interesting anyway The attempt to recapture the dark mood of the first season after the disastrous second is painfully obvious. It's set in the same universe and it feels redundant, even counterproductive. The first had philosophical aspirations. The third is mostly soporific.
