Mindhunter: Season 2 Reviews

December 2, 2019
Mindhunter is compelling, but after watching, you might feel you need a shower.

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.

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

Mindhunter is an acquired taste but, for those who enjoy its languid pace and cerebral tone, the new series does not disappoint.

What's most compelling about Mindhunter is the way that, like its protagonists, it investigates the human response to violent crime and, in particular, the way that close proximity to such crime can burnish one's image.

While it mostly hangs together for now, there are already more signs of strain than there were back in 2017.

While the series benefits from giving everyone more to do, the pacing could be quicker.

"Mindhunter" is deeper, richer, and more affecting this go round, even as it steers away from studying proven killers.

Maybe everything really is coming up Mindhunter. But in the dark and cruel world these characters live in, it all seems awfully convenient.

As with last season, David Fincher directs the first episode with his usual panache, especially during the cold open.

There's a recalibrating of Ford that includes panic attacks and a consequent popping of Valium, one of several character developments to remind us that Mindhunter isn't too cool for detective-show tropes.

The series is still far more Zodiac than Seven, but it's also more propulsive now, with no fewer than three ongoing investigations.
