Why Stream This Film?
You may ask why would anyone watch two seasons (19 episodes) of the most ghastly serial killers in recent times? But the series delves more into the psychological factors that drive these people to commit such horrifying crimes. Holden Ford and Bill Tench are agents working in the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit. They study these murderers in order to understand how they think. What they find out may give them the knowledge to solve ongoing cases. It’s a controversial series raising the burning question: Should these monsters be kept alive and studied or should they simply be executed? See “Mindhunter” and decide for yourself.

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

EW.com

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

The Guardian

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.
