Netflix’s ‘Mindhunter’: well-produced, slightly boring
This past week I finished the new Netflix original series, “Mindhunter.” The series is based on a semi-autobiographical book written by John Douglas, who used to work for the FBI and now writes books about his experiences in it. I was originally attracted to the show because I saw that one of my favorite directors, David Fincher, was directing four of the 10 episodes. The series is very similar to Fincher’s 2007 movie “Zodiac,” which details the search for the infamous serial killer. “Mindhunter” is fictional, but does feature portrayals of some real-life serial killers like Edmund Kemper and Richard Speck.
