The Last Six Minutes of True Detective Last Night Was the Best Thing On TV In Years

True Detective  has been pretty impressive so far between the performances of its two fantastic leads, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and the central murder mystery that’s far more gripping than any traditional crime procedural.

Our own Randy Dankievitch will have his own review up shortly, but it’s worth spotlighting the soon-to-be-famous scene in question.

The hellish closing of Sunday night’s “True Detective” is the sequence everyone is talking about, but a quick scene in a strip club may have been even better. As a dancer peels off an American-flag bikini, the DJ blares KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions’ “Illegal Business,” a blunt tribute to America’s underground economies. Capitalism runs amok onstage as the dancer strips and Woody Harrelson broken detective barely notices. You can feel the American dream dying at thriving in the same instant.
