The interviews have been the highlight for both seasons so far. That and seeing the birth of Behavioural Sciences in the FBI which have played such a large part of other works of fiction. SIlence of the Lambs as one example. Unfortunately it's use in real life has proven to be less useful than a chocolate Teapot. It's use in fiction has become so prevailent now though that it's become a popular trope.
If you want some true crime that's incredibly compelling to watch i'd recommend The Jinx - The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst. It's unmissable.
Also i don't think i've mentioned The Report, the Adam Driver movie:
"Idealistic Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones, tasked by his boss to lead an investigation into the CIA's post 9/11 Detention and Interrogation Program, uncovers shocking secrets."
If you enjoy political thrillers it's well worth a watch. Maybe not quite as good as All the President's Men, but up there with the best.
Edit - It would be remiss of me not to mention the TV show Hannibal. Did you watch it? If you like FBI Serial Killer fiction, Hannibal is as good as it gets. Three Seasons of the most beautiful television you'll ever see. The cast are excellent throughout, but Mads Mikkelson as Hannibal is absolutely sublime.
loved Hannibal TV series. watched it long ago..All Presidents Men I saw too. Good movie. Will check out Jinx and The Report . Sounds interesting.
I wached Knives out (Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Anna de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Christopher Plummer).,,...a fun tense funny exciting movie. Worth watching. 7.8/10 for me.
6Ubderground (Ryan Reynolds)...it's basically Deadpool without his suit and superheros+ Baby Driver . Its OK. But I cant even remember the story it was that unmemorable. If you like actions its for you. 6/10 movie but action shots are 7/10,
Netflix's The Dawning Rage (Korean). Dont bother. Some big stars in a silly big CGI action movie. 2/10
Hustlers - Did I say it was rubbish?,I will say again..it was a waste of time. J.Lo is so bad in this silly simple predictable movie. 0/10.
Watching "The Informer" now (Anna de Armas, Clive Owens, Rosamund Pike)..surprisingly is very good so far...will report when I finished it. Its basically a gangster Russian poland mafia informer movie based in US.
i didnt know Mind Hunter Season 2,was finished already...will try find it thanks.
