The Guardian - G2 - - Autumn Arts 2017 -

David Fincher’s 1979-set drama fol­lows two FBI agents who spe­cialise in in­ter­view­ing se­rial killers to try and un­der­stand how their minds are mis­wired. But as the Si­lence of the Lambs showed, mur­der­ers are of­ten clever at mess­ing with their in­ter­roga­tors’ heads too.
