Citizen X

Chris Gerolmo, 1995 (8.7*)
Based on a true story of Russia’s worst serial killer, who killed over 50 young victims. Stephen Rea, always excellent, plays a forensics expert who spends years on the case, assisted and supervised by Soviet party bureaucrat Donald Sutherland, who won an Emmy and Golden Globe for supporting actor. After the case stalls with no leads, they resort to the FBI’s technique of psychological profiling (which had not been used in Russia), and bring in psychiatrist Max von Sydow. This may be a little slow, but is an excellent docudrama about criminal investigations, the case now being used in FBI training.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
