It's all wonderfully rich material that the creative team, headed by David Fincher, makes the most of. And there's plenty of movement plot-wise, too.

I wasn't as turned on by the new season of Mindhunter, but it continues to be a provocative vehicle for raising questions about workplace ethics, and gender, sexual and racial politics.

Excellent performances. [Full review in Spanish]

By yanking [Holden Ford] into season 2, a story with more nuance and care than he seems capable of, the series holds a mirror to the revered concept of the callous genius.

Mindhunter stumbles by linking the intimate lives of its protagonists with those of the psychopaths they interview and stalk. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's all very, very dark, which for me is very, very intriguing.

Andrew Dominik and Carl Franklin ensure that the handsome cinematography and meticulous attention to detail is maintained throughout. Jason Hill's eerie score further adds to the dark, chilling ambience.

Compelling as it may be, Mindhunter does not make for easy television - by its very nature, it's frustrating and cruel, caring not a jot for resolution or conventional payoffs.

A show full of sad, dark conversations in rooms has become a hypnotic exploration of how we keep our own houses in order when working with madmen.

It doesn't appear the popularity of true crime media will subside anytime soon. As frightening and macabre as these sinister people and acts may be, it's endlessly fascinating.
August 26, 2019
While Mindhunter exploits society's obsession with scary monsters - that indefensible yet commonplace notion of serial killers as celebrities - it manages to remain rooted in history and research.
August 26, 2019
The late Seventies-set tale oozes style and class, as one might expect when director David Fincher (Seven, Network, The Social Network), among others, is on the team.
August 26, 2019
Season two is just as clever, but it has a lot more heart - emotional intelligence, a psychologist might say.
August 26, 2019
Mindhunter is an acquired taste but, for those who enjoy its languid pace and cerebral tone, the new series does not disappoint.
August 24, 2019
The show's second season reveals the intricate intersections between personal and political neuroses.

[It] isn't fixated on solving any particular cases but taking time to study the methodological eccentricity of each crime and the increasingly dark obsession of the detectives, sucked ever more inextricably into the transgressive vortex.
August 22, 2019
Mindhunter's second season is absorbing, upsetting, and fascinating, and it leaves us wanting more. Television can't do much better than that.
August 22, 2019
From the little I've seen, the high standards of season 1 haven't dipped a bit.
August 20, 2019
Thankfully, season 2 delivers more structure and story across nine episodes, more deeply acquainting us with the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit.

That Mindhunter manages to be a satisfying FBI mystery on top of that is a testament to its sharp directing and mostly smart writing, even as some threads never quite come together.
