Today we’re highlighting the Hannibal series, featured in this collection. Season 2 of the show earned an impressive 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating.
The story focuses on Dr. Hannibal Lecter in his late days as a psychiatrist. He becomes involved with the FBI when they ask for his assistance profiling a serial killer. Unbeknownst to the FBI or criminal profiler Will Graham, Lecter himself is the killer.
Like the books and films preceding the series, Dr. Lecter is presented as a complex and sophisticated man. His home is bold and tidy, and his clothing is impeccably tailored. Both his sophistication and attention to detail translate into his killings. Each kill is presented as a work of art, a tableau of emotional expression. Later, Dr. Lecter draws out the pleasure by savoring pieces of his victims with unsuspecting dinner guests, intricately disguised in the delicate dishes he prepares.
The character of Dr. Lecter is all about contrast, juxtaposing something evil and stomach-churning with beauty and art. Executive Producer Bryan Fuller has done a masterful job pulling off this combination. Filmed with breathtaking cinematography, the series visually surpasses network television standards.
