Competition: Win ‘True Detective’ *closed*

The latest must-own box set for fans of HBO’s The Sopranos and The Wire, True Detective is an existential police procedural starring Woody Harrelson and a superb Matthew McConaughey. Their characters, Martin and Rust, are partners on a sinister case that takes place in the pits of rural Louisiana, contending with oil industry pollution, religious zealots and satanic sacrificial murders. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of True Detective on 9 June, we have THREE DVD copies of the first season to give away courtesy of HBO Home Entertainment. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey), and Martin Hart (Harrelson), are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge into 2012, as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of True Detective on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

True Detective’s Matthew McConaughey made his big-screen debut in which Richard Linklater film?

a) Dazed and Confused
b) The Newton Boys
