We’re joined by Sean Colletti, the other half of the This is Our Design team to discuss an epic example of ’80s movie, Michael Mann’s Manhunter, the first filmic adaptation of Red Dragon, as we begin our analysis of the Hannibal Lecter film series. We wade into the Brian Cox VS Anthony Hopkins – Who is the better Hannibal? debate. (Though, it’s the better Hannibal, not the BEST, because that is definitely Mads Mikkelson.) The discussion follows the fact that this is a tragically flawed film, and a rather poor adaptation, but it is still often mesmerizing and fascinating.
