Top of the Lake is written and directed by Jane Campion and Garth Davis. That's reason enough for taking it seriously, but for being disappointed too.
David Thomson, The New Republic  full review
 
The mystery of just what happened to the child unspools almost languidly against the backdrop of wild and gorgeous New Zealand country. The ugliness of humans amid such beauty resounds like a cold slap.
Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Evolves into a rich portrait of hard lives and the possibility of healing.
Matthew Gilbert, Boston Globe  full review
 
This is a series you'll want to watch -- and maybe even rewatch -- each week.
Robert Bianco, USA Today  full review
 
As slow as it seems to go at first, you'll be surprised at how quickly you're addicted.
Hank Stuever, Washington Post  full review
 
The gorgeous scenery around the silvery lake, alpine yet not in a welcoming way, makes all the pools of psychic pain seem even blacker.
Nancy DeWolf Smith, Wall Street Journal  full review
 
Top of the Lake is Jane Campion and her cast at the top of their game.
David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
Top of the Lake, like the best crime series, is about so much more than solving a crime.
Willa Paskin, Salon.com  full review
 
I have no idea where any of it's headed. But I am going along.
Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Creepy and cockeyed, unholy and unnerving, Top Of The Lake is riveting stuff.
Glenn Garvin, Miami Herald  full review
 
Elisabeth Moss anchors the film as Detective Robin Griffin, a tough cop and restless woman whose curt manner suggests she has secrets.
David Hinckley, New York Daily News  full review
 
Jane Campion's smart, bracing, hugely enjoyable mystery rural noir ...
Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice  full review
 
Absorbing and richly atmospheric.
Justin Chang, Variety  full review
 
An edgy, disturbing and altogether first-rate crime drama that very much centers on women, though it does have a lot of daddy issues.
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter  full review
