Red Riding – 5 stars

Red Riding is a British television production released theatrically in the U.S..  The story is set against a backdrop of serial murders in the north of England, including the Yorkshire Ripper case.  The case is covered in three installments: 1974, 1980 and 1983.  Though the murders are the central focus, this is really a rich and gritty story about police corruption and the strain of the cases on the police and the community.  I liken it to David Fincher’s masterpiece Zodiac.
