David Fincher Netflix Series Mindhunter with Jonathan Groff Gets Trailer

“How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?” So says the F.B.I. agent played by Holt McCallany at the end of the teaser trailer for the Netflix series Mindhunter. For David Fincher, the show will be yet another opportunity for the filmmaker to return to the scene of his first cinematic triumph: the serial-killer genre. The series, which will also be directed by Asif Kapadia, Tobias Lindholm, and Andrew Douglas, and is executive produced by Fincher, Joshua Donen, Charlize Theron, and Cean Chaffin, concerns the investigative odyssey conducted by two F.B.I. agents (played by McCallany and Jonathan Groff) to “discover the brutal answers.”

Oscar 2016 Winner Predictions: Documentary

Only two rather basic flavors are represented in this year’s documentary Oscar rundown, and it’s to the doc branch’s great shame that they couldn’t see fit to nominate a pair of movies each containing multitudes that would give Baskin-Robbins a cold sweat: Laurie Anderson’s very subjective and philosophical Heart of a Dog, which astonishingly managed to make it to the list of 15 finalists, and Frederick Wiseman’s uncompromisingly democratic In Jackson Heights, which didn’t. A nomination for either would have single-handedly liberated the entire category from its continuing, medium-reductive fascination with activist-leaning, politically charged current-events studies and intimate, troubled personal portraits from the arts industries.
