Hi Barney and Tara, here’s my review of the Netflix’s Mindhunter Season 2
Now we can all agree that Season 1 of Mindhunter was great. It had a completely different approach to crime prodecurals. Created by David Fincher, maker of such films as Seven, Zodiac, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, all revolving around serial killers, Mindhunter is apparently inspired by the investigations and writings of John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
Fincher directed the first three episode of the new season and two episode are directed by the great Australia film director Andrew Dominic, who did such films as Killing Them Softly, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and my personal favourite Chopper.
Season 2 goes along the same line as the first Season, Holden Ford, yes it’s a funny name especially to australians, and his cohorts interview serial killers to see how they tick. This time they interview the likes of David ‘Son of Sam’ Berkowitz and Charles Manson amongst others, along with the return of Edmund Kemper. BTK drops in and out, being creepy and murdery also. But the main thrust of the narrative is the teams efforts in tracking down the Atlanta Child Killer.
Their are some jaw dropping scenes and if you enjoyed the first season, binge it today, dont wait. But utimately the second season Mindhunter left me a bit unsatisfied and wanting more. I know my opinion wont be popular, but as Ice T sez eat a cold bowl of dicks.
