The Singing Detective (1986)
Before True Detective came this intricately constructed puzzle-drama. Michael Gambon is terrific as a toxic writer of pulps forced to examine the relationship between his hard-boiled fiction and his painful past during a protracted hospital stay. Also? It’s a musical! Skip the Mel Gibson remake and seek the original miniseries, stat.
