Critic Consensus: Top of the Lake remains impressively idiosyncratic and ambitious in its second season, even if the plot of this six-episode arc isn't quite as tightly wound as its predecessor's.

News & Interviews for Top of the Lake: China Girl
All the forced coincidences will make your eyes roll, as if Australia is some kind of tiny town where everyone just happens to be connected somehow, criminally and/or romantically.
China Girl is full of aphorisms and statements that might be profound if they weren't so nonsensical.
Kidman, part of the recent ensemble in HBO's Emmy-nominated Big Little Lies, is even more impressive here as the possessive, high-strung Julia while Dencik completely inhabits the role of thoroughly oily "Puss."
For all of China Girl's didacticism, it has great characters, a mischievous sense of humor, grace notes.
China Girl does what True Detective hoped to -- it is intense, disturbing and bizarre without buckling under the weight of its philosophies or politics.
