Manhunter ★★★★½

"Graham begins to see sight as more than information, but as Lecter tells him, an emotional, sensuous feeling. Then he enters the supernatural—a push in shot that is both static and mobile, a special effect use on the eyes of a woman. He can not see the facts but what drives his killer, but senses the feelings that do. Mirrors, screens, a shot of Graham reaching his hand out toward a window into the darkness—the film follows someone who understands that simply following the beats is not enough: but it’s the flow between information, the sensuous tactility of character itself that becomes the information for the case."

This movie is G.O.A.T. More on the podcast.
