A huge step up from the unfollowable plot and unfathomable evil of Red Riding: 1974.

Aside from the ongoing criminal mystery and obstruction of powerful men, it's a tale of dreary duty. [Blu-ray]

Unrolling at a frustratingly slow pace, it's the weak link in the series, but it's still an extraordinary -- and extraordinarily well-assembled -- series.

1980 isn't a placeholder by any means, but it suffers by its middle placement, lacking the newness of the first film or the cumulative satisfactions of the last.

Stands as a wrenching tale of power abused and lives discarded. It is powerful stuff.

Each film is enriched by collective detail, but it would have been richer had they played off each other rather than extending the argument.

It's a good film on its own and it's made great by its place between two others.

This second film, which paints the West Yorkshire police as first degree multiple murderers, has a strong subtext of woman and their children.

1980 benefits from calmer direction and a better class of actors, while gradually drawing out an additional serial killer tale that goes beyond journalistic investigation to pry open the black heart of the local law.

If Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Criminal Minds, and Lovely Bones haven't sated your hunger for watching entertainments showcasing the abuse, torture, and murder of children and women, you are in luck.
