True Detective: Comparisons and References by MrRTJL

Me ha llamado la atención este vídeo de Vimeo Spoiler Warning and Graphic Violence Warning

A compilation of the various references I was able to glean from the first season of True Detective (Cary Joji Fukunaga, 2014). As expected, many dips into seminal serial killer films The Silence of the Lambs and Se7en. Unexpectedly, though, references to art house films Ivan’s Childhood and Take Shelter.
