True Detective director Cary Fukunaga is serious about love letters too


The second season of True Detective is right around the corner which means that most fans sitting in the flat circle void without any new material from the show are likely revisiting the first season once more time.

More from HBO

You can never watch the first season too much, and that has everything to do with the Emmy Award winning direction of Cary Fukunaga. But while he’s a perfectionist director, the set isn’t the only place he’s dead serious about giving out his best work.

According to Us Weekly, Fukunaga is as serious about love letters as he is about being a perfectionist director.

"“I’ve written immense love letters that are supposed to be opened over days at a time. I used to always make art for girls. That was the thing I did for girls to like me. I did portraits, drawings, letters that formed outlines of significant things in our relationship. Art. I just used art in general. It usually worked.”"

This tells us to things at the same time. One the one hand, it gives us insight into just how expressive an artist and a perfectionist Fukunaga is which is something we saw demonstrated with his Emmy award winning work. What is also tells us is that we need some actual news from HBO about the show because we’re talking about love letters here, and we need some season two nuggets to chew on as production prepares to rev up this month.
