Summary

But Pizzolatto was able to take his time with the third installment in the anthology series, letting his ideas simmer into a rich, dark stew, and the result this time is far more satisfying.Season 3 is set in the Ozarks and stars two-time Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Cottonmouth in season 1 of Luke Cage) as Detective Wayne Hays. And lastly, we get the present day, as an elderly Hays suffers from dementia and struggles to piece together what really went down all those years ago.This season has many of the elements that made the first installment so enjoyable: a mysterious cold case in a brooding, atmospheric setting; a community harboring lots of secrets; hints of occult symbols; conflict and violence simmering just below the surface; and a detective tormented by regret and personal demons. While some might miss McConaughey's drawling philosophical rumination—a highlight of that first season ("Time is a flat circle," man)—the dialogue here is crisp and tight, in keeping with Hays's more laconic personality. And it's really a challenge to do all that while trying not to reveal his own dark secret.Because the story is told predominantly from Hays' perspective, the narrative jumps back and forth among the time periods somewhat haphazardly, in keeping with the unpredictability of his memory.
