Critic Reviews for Mindhunter: Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (19)

It is a disturbing premise about a disturbing topic. Mindhunter capitalizes on all the skin-crawling discomfort of it.

The [David] Fincher Zodiac-eque deliberate and unflinching gaze keeps it worthwhile. For now.

Beautifully composed and tensely paced, Mindhunter is darkly addictive. The show deals with more than a few disturbing concepts and cases - those with a weaker constitution for such grim matters may find the stark details a little challenging to bear.

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.

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."
