Hannibal

TV Series | USA 2013 | 43' | OV

Brilliant but mentally unstable profiler Will Graham is hired by FBI agent Jack Crawford to feel his way into the mind of serial killers. But when he is partnered with the slightly weird Dr. Hannibal Lecter as a psychological consultant, Graham’s gift of empathy become more and more of a burden. It’s an infernal game of cat and mouse which is only mentioned on the fringes of RED DRAGON and THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS: The first meeting of Graham and Lecter and their endless psychological assessing of each other now gets the series treatment. The atmosphere is more akin to horror than to crime thriller, and a magnificent cast of Laurence Fishburne, Hugh Dancy and the chilling Mads Mikkelsen prevents this to end up as a copy of DEXTER with another serial killer hunting serial killers: Hannibal shows no interest in catching murderers whatsoever but instead relishes in playing perfidious mind games with his FBI colleague – and gets his money’s worth on a culinary level, too.
