Flix Not to Miss: ‘Top of the Lake’
ARVE Error: need id and provider

Oscar winner Jane Campion is one of the most talented contemporary, female directors who sadly hasn’t come out with a new film in awhile. That she decided to make a detective miniseries is fascinating. But don’t expect the typical crime procedural. Top of the Lake is an interesting, moody character study of  life in the outback, anchored by the brilliant Elisabeth Moss. It was a relief to find a piece populated with women of all different shapes and sizes who do not look like they just walked off the runway. More interesting was the relationships between the men and women and the women’s relationships to each other. I’ve only seen the first episode, but I can’t wait to watch the rest. Top of the Lake is available on Netflix.
