Netflix may have raised their prices, but they’re certainly delivering plenty of bang for your buck. This week they’ve got two, big auteur projects hitting the service. There’s Noah Baumbach‘s new film, “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” and David Fincher‘s new series, “Mindhunter.” And with the latter essentially looking like a TV show version of “Zodiac,” we’re all in.
Starring Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, and Hannah Gross, and co-produced by Charlize Theron, “Mindhunter” follows FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench, who study the damaged psyches of serial killers in an attempt to understand and catch them, and in the process pioneer the development of modern serial killer profiling. It all looks like immaculately crafted stuff, and getting behind the camera is Fincher, Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm, and Andrew Douglas.
“Mindhunter” screens at BFI London Film Festival and will be ready for you to binge on Friday.
