Manhunter ★★★½

Remix mash-up The Cat O' Nine Tails, Peeping Tom, and M with a much more moody tone and you're in the right ball park.

Now. This movie is very very silly, and quite camp, and often embarassingly 80s not least with the needle drops which have um, not aged well. Also like, I had this film hyped up to me as this big thematic statement on how cops and criminals are really two sides of the same coin as Micheal Mann has explored elsewhere and then they playing badass rock music as the cop saves the day like, it's really not that deep, and that theme with regards to Will Graham was so thoroughly explored on Hannibal. I enjoyed it a lot, but it is very very silly.
