  • . The filmmakers are so slick, playing the concept straight as an arrow, that the audience may even believe it to be real if only for a moment.

    June 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Top Knot Detective pays homage to an era of television that embraced wooden acting and wonky sets so beloved by the likes of Matthew Holness, Matt Berry and Richard Ayoade.

  • I really enjoyed Top Knot Detective not only as a comedy, but as an homage and as a drama. It made me feel exactly how I felt back in the early 90's. watching the surreal late-night programming that it, quite honestly, almost made me shed a tear.

    October 31, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The illusion established by Top Knot Detective writer/directors Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce is so complete that when their saga turns serious, you're genuinely caught up in the drama.

  • I want to believe Top Knot Detective existed, and if it doesn't, I'm sure as hell glad McCann and Pearce created it, because it's goddamned hysterical.
