August 28, 2019
Compelling as it may be, Mindhunter does not make for easy television - by its very nature, it's frustrating and cruel, caring not a jot for resolution or conventional payoffs.

A show full of sad, dark conversations in rooms has become a hypnotic exploration of how we keep our own houses in order when working with madmen.

It doesn't appear the popularity of true crime media will subside anytime soon. As frightening and macabre as these sinister people and acts may be, it's endlessly fascinating.

While Mindhunter exploits society's obsession with scary monsters - that indefensible yet commonplace notion of serial killers as celebrities - it manages to remain rooted in history and research.
August 26, 2019
The late Seventies-set tale oozes style and class, as one might expect when director David Fincher (Seven, Network, The Social Network), among others, is on the team.

Season two is just as clever, but it has a lot more heart - emotional intelligence, a psychologist might say.

Mindhunter is an acquired taste but, for those who enjoy its languid pace and cerebral tone, the new series does not disappoint.

[It] isn't fixated on solving any particular cases but taking time to study the methodological eccentricity of each crime and the increasingly dark obsession of the detectives, sucked ever more inextricably into the transgressive vortex.
August 22, 2019
Mindhunter's second season is absorbing, upsetting, and fascinating, and it leaves us wanting more. Television can't do much better than that.

That Mindhunter manages to be a satisfying FBI mystery on top of that is a testament to its sharp directing and mostly smart writing, even as some threads never quite come together.
August 20, 2019
Mindhunter grips you -- not with the promise of some big reveal, but for what it chooses to unravel in the story of killers who've controlled their seductive narratives for far too long.

If you are going to spend your weekend guiltily luxuriating in a show about the depths of human depravity, you might as well make it a stylish one.

Mindhunter's second season embraces a world where enduring mysteries don't always have satisfying conclusions.

While it mostly hangs together for now, there are already more signs of strain than there were back in 2017.
