“Mindhunter”: A Killer Beginning

THR heaps praise on the new series: ‘It’s been over twenty years since David Fincher directed the moody, malevolent serial killer thriller Seven (1995), which had a generation of moviegoers asking, in their best beleaguered Brad Pitt voice, “What’s in the box?!?” Netflix’s often mesmerizing new FBI profiler series Mindhunter isn’t the glum bit of camp that that film was, though as in Seven, a prime plot point in the first two episodes, starring Jonathan Groff, revolves around an offscreen severed head used to make a dastardly symbolic point. This is certainly a compelling beginning.’
