1991 'Silence of the Lambs' was a thunderbolt thriller that struck an electric shock into the hearts and minds of viewers round the world. For the first time a film on the topic of 'serial murder' hit the nail square on the head intimately and up close.
The only other movie that raised the hairs on the back of my neck was 'Psycho' 1960. It's topic of 'serial murder' filmed in black & white stabbed blood red on screen with such unexpectedly violent brutally (much like 'Silence . . ') it left an indelible impression upon my 7 year old mind that still conjures a deep shiver.
2019 'Night Hunter' was an unexpected surprise and a full length thrill. Henry Cavill is an outstanding actor with all of his roles which for me began in 2003 with "I Capture the Castle'.
The complexity of an exceptionally well written & directed plot completely immersed my complete attention! Who sits down anymore to 'watch' a movie without doing something else?!
Rare are movies that provoke anticipation or imaginative thought upon where all the twists lead and finally fall together in place.
Very few viewers will appreciate this movie's pace, depth, or plot. This movie definitely isn't for the weak & lazy viewer who demands everything to be 'dumbed down' with a list of ingredients spelling out or explaining the point in each chapter of the story.
Every performance was perfectly presented. The cops weren't made to look dumb, more like overly worked, and no character outdid the excellent performance of the star - serial murderer - Brendan Fletcher - KUDOS, MAN! You totally nailed it!
It's a film I'll never forget and will add to the previously mentioned about the very real and undoubtedly seriously overlooked topic of 'serial murder'.
