With “MINDHUNTER,” director David Fincher leisurely investigates the birth of evil. The film is a conversational exploration of criminal behavior that could become an origin for modern American madness.Darren Franich
Based on the work of the FBI agents who pioneered criminal profiling, David Fincher’s new slow-burn thriller will reward those with the patience to sit back and discover the men behind the monsters.Stuart Heritage
Creator Joe Penhall and his team of writers and director David Fincher look at the ghastly business of serial killing while also offering up some sympathetic human drama. “MINDHUNTER” is a show about process and, to some extent, science. It’s about how researchers and investigators began to deepen and complicate their, and thus our own, concepts of criminal pathology.Richard Lawson
