Critic Reviews for Mindhunter: Season 1

All Critics (90) | Top Critics (27)

It's talk heavy, slick, Fincher crime adapted awesomely for the small screen.

February 9, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Under the direction of Fincher, there is an unshowy, meticulous cinematic quality that draws you in, irresistibly, to its pale-brown world of desk jobs and smoky cinemas.

The show's at its most absorbing when it's spending time with monsters...

Most TV crime dramas are whodunits. Columbo famously reversed things by starting with the murder, and making it a "How'd he get him?" Mindhunter, in contrast to both those approaches, is all about motive. It's a "Whydunit."

Mindhunter, like Ford, is an odd duck, but oddness is its virtue.

Sometimes it's funny. Often it's chilling. But however you take it, at least "Mindhunter" is working a fresh angle.
