Through True Detective, Matthew McConaughey has proved a master of the nihilistic, fatalistic observation — probably because he’s been doing it for years. He’s dabbled in darkness in such films as Reign of Fire and Mud, but has also tossed off a cynical remark or two in his most hammy rom-coms. With True Detective’s season finale coming up this Sunday (or, in a flat-circle time line, has already happened this weekend), it’s time to play True or False Detective: Look at the quotes below and click “True” if Rust said it and “False” if it came out of the mouth of a different McConaughey character. The answer will be revealed with a check for right or an X for wrong. Good luck, but you won’t need it, as you’ve already got the score you’ll always get.
