A sort of cinematic yang to Citizen X‘s yin: (very) loosely based on the same person. While Citizen X is a pretty faithful (if fictionalized) account of actual events, this is instead an entirely fictional look into the life and mind of a character inspired by the real-life Russian serial killer. Adapted from the director’s own novel, The Communist Who Ate Children.
I’m honestly not yet sure how i feel about it as a directorial effort
on the whole, but…
… Mcdowell has never failed me, and this role is a good’un for him.
Bonus prize: score by Angelo Badalamenti
