Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Mindhunter

It would've been nice had the series not clung so tightly to every cliché in the cop movie playbook, but nonetheless, this is exhilarating drama. I loved the way the conversations with the various murderers created parallels & insinuations in the lives of its protagonists, finding that Nietzschean concept of the abyss staring back. The slow burn aesthetic & emphasis on dialog over sensationalism was much appreciated.
