Re: True Detective-New HBO Show
just rewatched it cause it was that good
I'm about to talk about what happened in the episode and my thoughts on a few things, so if you haven't watched it yet, you may want to skip this part
there seem to be a lot of hints (camera angles, minute details) that really point to Rustin (mcconaughey) being the killer:
1. When matt and woody are driving, they cut to a billboard of a woman that was murdered and the caption says "who killed me?" and then they pan right back to Rustin.
2. When Rustin is looking over the crime scene of the girl with the antlers, they cut to woody and an entire team of police officers heading towards Rustin....all the while Rustin seems to be almost "admiring" the work (his work?)
3. After the press conference announcing the murder, the audio sort of carries over to the next scene and you hear "this man will be brought to Louisiana justice", and they show Rustin, and then they show the prison that they are about to visit....almost as if inferring that he'll be the one to serve the time.
4. When they are talking to a citizen in the same town where the little girl (marie) went missing, the citizen looks strangely at Rustin, and he sort of walks behind woody and then turns sideways...almost as if the citizen recognized him, or Rustin was acting weird around him. (this is brilliant execution by the director and mcconaughey, it's so small, yet detailed, the way he moves behind woody and then turns sideways away from him)
5. Rustin is either a really great detective, or he's the killer....he knew Dora was a prostitute, he referenced the antlers as being a "crown", and the coroner said the same thing. He corrects woody when he says "this guy seems to have made this really personal", and says that it's completely not personal at all, and that this definitely isn't his first kill.
6. When he shows up drunk at woody's house, it's almost as like he could be depressed because the trail on him is getting really hot, and he wanted a way to take out his emotions.
6. The final shot when the questioners want information and he says "you better start asking the right fuckin questions", and then of course how long the camera stays with Rustin
I could be completely grasping at straws here, or maybe there is some merit to what I said. In all honesty, I'd prefer if he isn't the killer.
Did anyone notice the repeated occurrence of the cross and christianity and then satanism? and even though Rustin claims to be anti-christian, he wears a cross. Just seems a little odd.
I'm really intrigued to see what sort of falling out Woody and Rustin had. Can't wait for the next episodes!
and if nothing can be done, we'll make the best of what's around.
