It’s a shame that this is so clearly made as a (apologies) copycat of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS since it actually has some interesting things to say about the influence of true crime on its audience and about serial killer fandom and it’s a shame a lot of that is watered down by the film’s adherence to the structure and tone of its predecessor. We’ve been relaxing on weekends by watching mid-budget ‘90s thrillers and it’s noticeable how much more consideration even the most disposable of them give to shot composition, scene lighting, and camera movements than a lot of ultra-high-budget franchise blockbusters today. Unsurprising to learn that the Director of Photography was the great László Kovács.
