Critic Reviews for Night Finds You

There was just enough to keep us watching. The plot nudged an inch or two forward.

Great drama relies on the element of surprise, not false promises of it.

If the first episode was all brood, mood, and ideas of fatherhood, the beginning of "Night Finds You" had liftoff.

Last season the stakes were serious. ... This season, the mystery needs to be solved because...Vince Vaughn needs his money back. It's a race against time to make sure he can pay the double mortgage on his game room.

Talk about a cliffhanger...

I continue to be impressed with this version of Vince Vaughn. Where has this guy been hiding?

What works this time around is actually getting to the story and having the characters crash into it.

Jun 29, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Vaughn does fine with the monologue, but it unfortunately remains the case that season two of True Detective has nothing to gain and everything to lose from comparisons to its predecessor.

The corrupt municipality of Vinci has the motto "Towards Tomorrow," but everyone on True Detective is obsessed with the past with an almost Faulknerian intensity.

If anything, in "Night Finds You," we see that Pizzolatto isn't necessarily trying to reinvent the wheel; he's just trying to steer it down a patented self-serious path.
