Criticism of Ted Bundy. In the mind of the killer with Elijah Wood and Jack Kirby in a singular dialectical duel
If you are fond of the subgenre of the real crimes , you will have clear the transcendence of one of the most ruthless assassins and explored by the audiovisual: Ted Bundy , who confessed to have finished with the life of thirty women between 1974 and 1978 throughout seven states, after having spent a decade by denying it.
Its presence in documentaries, documentaries, films and series of fiction has been very abundant with films such as telefilm The Deliberate Stranger , starring Mark Harmon and films like A fallen angel (Angel of Decay) With Ryan Gage on her paper or Extremely cruel, evil and perverse (extremely wicked, shockingly evil and vile) in which Zac Efron got into her skin.
It may be the most weak product in which he has seen the name of him was one of this year: Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman with Chad Michael Murray as a protagonist (unpublished in our country).
On a mixed terrain, we find the dramatization of 2002 Ted Bundy , directed by Matthew Bright and starring Michael Reilly Burke, the medigraje The Hunt of Ted Bundy and other phone, A stranger by my side , from 2003 led by Paul Shapiro with Billy Campbell on the role of the killer based on the old book of Anne Rule, who knew him personally.
And from the documentary genre we find conversations with murderers: TED tapes of 2019 produced by Netflix and Ted Bundy: in love with a murderer , available in Prime Video, which addresses the Sexual predator environment, telling the story of his girlfriend Elisabeth Kendall, his daughter and other survivors for whom it has been practically impossible to recover a normal life.
Fiction has also provided us with an exceptional series entitled mindhunter in which we are talked about the creation of the FBI behavior science unit , whose primordial mission was to create psychological profiles to try to understand, in The measure of the possible, experiences and springs that moved to this type of sociopaths or sexual psychopaths and solve open cases.
Today we are going to tell you about Ted Bundy: In the mind of the murderer (Man of No God) and of the particular relationship that he established in his last years Ted Bundy with the agent Bill Hagmaier with whom he kept Correspondence and then meets in punctual interviews already in the death corridor.
Bundy represented a new typology of serial killer who needed to be studied: he was a man who was charming, educated and took care of his appearance, weapons he used precisely to use his victims, require his help or to try to persuade others from His innocence.
When the case saw the light the FBI unit had already interviewed more than thirty convicted assassins and, including some of the most ruthless murderers of the panorama as Ed Kemper, Mount Rissell and Richard Speck. Hagmaier was novice, but volunteered to address this difficult interlocutor, which had systematically refused to communicate with the Federal Police.
One of the main attractions of the film Ted Bundy: In the mind of the murderer , which in itself does not discover anything that we do not know (his narcissistic personality, the excuses that led him to wield that porn had excited His imagination or his manipulative practices are well known), it is how it is articulated in dialectical lances between the two main interpreters.
Luke Kirby ( The wonderful Mrs. Maisel ) is mimicked with the image we have of Ted Bundy: his way of speaking, his gesture and his twisted way of trying to take the reins of the conversations, have had to be a challenge For the actor, but it leaves more than airy from the Brete.
Elijah Wood , which gives you the replica and also participates in TED Bundy: In the mind of the murderer as an executive producer, also performs a great job showing some helplessness but also a strong will to do justice The families of the victims trying at the same time putting science ahead of the horror narrated by the murderer with the idea of taking out a good for society hence.
The direction of Amber Sealey in this sense is very noteworthy, since much of the footage is based on these conversations with long parliaments that sometimes reach a creepy depth level (tremendous the metaphor of the marine fund) .
She also plays in favor of the film recreation of the time and the inclusion of some file images that give him even more credibility to the tape.
In summary accounts, with ted bundy: in the mind of the murderer , we are not facing a simple or pleasant movie, but of a work that having the murderer in the focus, is capable of not excessive In the morbid to show him already against the ropes shortly before dying, already unmasked and devoid of his halo of superiority.
