Critic Reviews for Mindhunter Season 1

All Critics (91) | Top Critics (29)

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

Feb 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...

Oct 13, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

This show has not just entertained me for an hour at a time, but instead has peaked my interest far beyond that.

Jan 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Decades of crime entertainment - ahem, CSI - have turned all of us into armchair sleuths, and the majority of movies and shows know that. Mindhunter is rewarding as hell to watch for entirely the opposite reason.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

A gleefully preposterous criminal procedural drama, with enough stylish direction and subtle genre subversion to help the premise feel fresh.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The cast comes to play, and they get in dirty with the material. The narratives are well structured and shine a light on the dinginess of the work.
