One of the world’s best directors has a new Netflix show that looks incredible

Paul Moore

He practically invented the modern serial killer genre.

Very few directors can be trusted to consistently provide quality entertainment, David Fincher is one of them.

Se7en, Fight Club, The Game, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl and The Social Network are just a few of the excellent films that he has made, but he’s also equally adept at producing some very impressive TV shows. As you may know, he’s also the executive producer on House of Cards.

Fincher has a sensibility for the macabre world of serial killers that’s unlike other filmmakers – take a look at Zodiac for proof of this – and it appears that his next work will see him returning to what he does best, examining the cold, calculated and chilling world of murderers with his new TV show on Netflix, Mindhunters.

The show revolves around one complex premise “how do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

Two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff & Holt McCallany) set out on a sinister investigative odyssey to discover the brutal answers.

The series is directed by Fincher but that’s not all. Asif Kapadia, the remarkably gifted director of Amy and Senna, will also be behind the lens along with Tobias Lindholm (A War, A Hijacking) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror, U Want Me 2 Kill Him?).

Mindhunters is available to watch on Netflix from October 13, 2017.
