Addy K.'s rating of the film Mindhunter

With MINDHUNTER, Fincher flicks his "people are perverts" maxim to slow burn. Directing 4 of 10 episodes, his precise visual style and combative intellectualism emerge as distinct signifiers. A pastiche of SOCIAL NETWORK, GONE GIRL and ZODIAC, the ten hours fully allow Fincher to explore personal themes: a brilliant young man vs. monolithic hierarchy; his estrangement from the mainstream not dissimilar to 'deviants'.
