LFF 2015: ‘Men & Chicken’ Review

by Mark Allen

Stars: David Dencik, Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Soren Malling, Nicolas Bro, Rikke Louise Andersson, Lisbet Dahl | Written and Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen Looking for all the world like an absurd family farce directed by David Cronenberg (albeit in Danish), Men & Chicken certainly gets points for its commitment to oddness. Its premise sees two brothers, Elias […]

‘Hannibal 3×06: Dolce’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“You expect us to believe that you lost yourself in the hot darkness of Hannibal Lecter’s mind?” That visceral snap as the rubber cord Bedelia is using to tie off her arm pops out of her mouth is like a short, sharp shove off a pier and into a storm-tossed sea. ‘Dolce’ is in some […]

‘Hannibal 3×05: Contorno’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“To the misfortune of the snail.” “Birds eat thousands of snails every day,” Chiyo tells us at the episode’s opening.  “Some of those snails survive digestion, and they emerge to find they’ve traveled the world.” It’s an unearthly image, a story of mindless astronauts propelled into a boundless unknown, and it bears similarities to Will’s symbolic […]

‘Hannibal 3×03: Secondo’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“This room holds sound and motion, great snakes wrestling and heaving in the dark.” One by one the figurative dead are passing through the mouth of the cathedral at Palermo and into the vastness of Hannibal’s palace. What they seek there differs from person to person. Inspector Pazzi sees a chance to recapture glory by […]

‘Hannibal 3×02: Primavera’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“God can’t save any of us, because… it’s inelegant.” After the sepulchral arthouse horror of last week’s ‘Antipasto’, viewers tuning in to ‘Primavera’ might reasonably have expected a return to form. What the episode gives us instead is, in Hannibal’s words, a rare gift: destruction and rebirth. Like the stunted, deformed stag that emerges from […]

‘Hannibal 3×01: Antipasto’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“This is posthumous.” The world in which Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal unfolds with dreadful inexorability is one of dreamlike, deathly unreality. Hannibal himself has been a psychopomp, a guide into the world of the dead, for many characters throughout the series’ run. His motives, to be sure, are never selfless, but on multiple occasions he has shepherded enemies, colleagues, […]

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller What is it about the character of Hannibal Lecter that draws us in? Gaspard Ulliel’s version in Hannibal Rising may not have had the same success as Anthony Hopkins or Mads Mikkelsen but Lecter is adored by the fans, even as one […]

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller Sakizuke: an appetizer similar to the French amuse-bouche. Not so long ago, (okay, a REALLY long time ago) a friend and I had an argument about the actors who have played Hannibal Lector. I was staunchly opposed to his declarations that […]

Interview: Mads Mikkelsen talks ‘Hannibal’

Despite strong skepticism from fans of the original movies, Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal has been a surprising success for NBC, pushing the envelope of what can be seen on traditional US network television.

Hannibal 1×05 – “Coquilles” Review

by Nathan Smith

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller ‘Coquilles’ is an outstanding hour of television. It’s equal parts horrifying and heart-wrenching while mixing in a dark standalone story. It’s a cocktail that Hannibal seems to have down pat and this episode is absolutely no exception. It skirts the plot of Abigail Hobbes […]
