The Movie That Introduced the World to Hannibal Lecter.
|An fbi specialist tracks a serial killer who appears to select his victims at random.|
"...an intense experience. All of the actors, including even legendary goofball Chris Elliott, give brooding, serious performances. Dave Beuschner, Film Threat
"...an unsettling thriller whose detached style perfectly complements its psychological intensity. Keith Phipps, The Onion A.V. Club
"The brilliance of Michael Mann's Manhunter is that it appreciates that the true nexus of humanity is our shared closeness. Marc Bernardin, Entertainment Weekly
"Petersen is superb... TV Guide
Editor's NoteRetired FBI agent Will Graham (William L. Petersen) returns to action to hunt down a serial killer by using his ability to get inside the psychopath's mind. However, it was this ability that drove him into retirement in the first place. The process of tracking and capturing the infamous Hannibal Lecter (Brian Cox) took a tremendous psychic toll on Graham, causing him to spent time in a mental hospital. With another madman on the loose, Graham has no choice but to return to duty, though he knows that it might cost him his family and his sanity. To get the old mind-set back, Graham visits Hannibal Lecter in his high-security jail cell. However, the manipulative Lecter plays both sides and warns the new killer that Graham is on his trail, telling him to destroy Graham's family to protect himself. In order to save his own family, Graham must risk everything to once again enter into the mind of the criminally insane. With MANHUNTER, Mann raises the bar for serial killer films, imbuing his killer with an almost sympathetic quality while keeping him extremely menacing and clearly dangerous. Based on the Thomas Harris novel RED DRAGON, which serves as the prequel to THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, MANHUNTER is a masterpiece of gripping storytelling and psychological horror.

Respected British actor Brian Cox (Rushmore) would not be so gauche as to flare his nostrils while smelling you -- he'd catch you off guard, throwing away the line about your cheap after shave with "a ship on the bottle" with a bemused note of thinly veiled contempt....read the full review|
