Ep 99: “Mindhunter”

February 13, 2020

We profile David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” and discuss:

  • cinematography, and use of color and camera movement;
  • editing;
  • writing & storytelling, some of the subtle psychological inserts;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Notes & References:
Additional camera movement note: it’s worth saying that keeping a character locked in the frame even in movement keeps us connected and tuned into their mental/emotional state
