The mystery may move from the top of the lake to the depths of the ocean, but the tension, turmoil and totally addictive drama remain the same...

Top of the Lake suggests the worst union between a run-of-the-mill network crime show and the rigid symbolism of Jane Campion's filmography.

This is why Top of the Lake is so singularly impactful and moving; Campion has an emotional comprehension that seems to effortlessly translate on screen and produce truly remarkable stories.

I admire something this unafraid to risk. Something this rocky and defensive. And I wonder if anything on television has come closer to capturing an age of crude opposition.
