A criminal profiler enlists Dr Lecktor’s help, in Michael Mann’s classic.
Dir Michael Mann
With William Peterson, Joan Allen, Kim Greist
Criminal profiler Will Graham (Petersen) comes out of retirement to assist in the capture of a vicious murderer dubbed ‘The Tooth Fairy.’ He reluctantly enlists the help of the infamous Dr Hannibal Lecktor (Cox), a killer he put away in the first place. Mann’s stylish take on Thomas Harris’ crime novel marked the resurgence of ‘charming’ serial killers in cinema.
