Mindhunter, a Netflix great hit, is a great crime drama, a bit slow at the start. The tension of the series story created between our beloved FBI agents and the serial killers is very organized. The characters are fully fleshed out and elaborate. Mindhunter features some unsettlingly good portrayals of notorious killers. They have freedom from establishing their psychological game rules. Mindhunter proved smarter, looser, and more deeply unsettling.
The shows at their most absorbing when it’s spending time with monsters. Mindhunter expertly satirizes a now well-worn crime genre, in which the solver of crimes takes center stage, rather than the crimes themselves or their victims. Mindhunter gets into the audience’s head very quickly, not only for the content but also for the era. Also, some fantastic acting from some beyond amazing actors, giving us the stories of these real crimes, are excellent.
