RECTIFY Season 2 Review: Sundance Channel’s Meditative Work On Life and Death Continues To Shine

Last spring, Rectifyfrom creator Ray McKinnon‘s (Sons of Anarchydebuted on the Sundance Channel.  Sundance was on a roll, having just aired the mesmerizing miniseries Top of the Lake.  I listed both series are two of the best of last year — both were about terrible and mysterious crimes in small towns, and how their impact resonated in every corner, and both took their time with their storytelling.  Top of the Lake may have gotten more attention at the time, but Rectify was a six-episode gem that also promised a more extended story and look into the life of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who was released from Death Row after 19 years thanks to new DNA evidence that exonerated him.
