Haven't heard of Top of the Lake but generally people mean more than the basic premise when they call something clever. I usually hear it to mean something well crafted (acting, imagery, editing, plot are all amazing and all come together perfectly or very nearly) that delivers an emotional impact.

Top of the Lake did that for me. I really thought it was something different and I enjoyed it, though I can't disagree that certain plot twists were probably put in at least partly for shock value.

I think that was a pretty pretentious thing for Jane Campion to say though.

Oh I definitely agree it's pretentious! I was reacting to the way OP made it seem like the basic premise of the show meant it couldn't be clever. I think that would sometimes be true but most times it would only be a small factor if at all.
