Dr Lecter Was Investigating In Baltimore

The figure of Dr Hannibal Lecter is one of the most successful and most feared in film history. The psychiatrist, portrayed by the great actor Anthony Hopkins in the well-known movie Silence Of The Lambs, has since appeared in numerous other movies and books. Hopkins was not the first actor who had initially been dedicated himself to the role. But he still causes nightmares today. So it’s no wonder that the surprise came when the NBC TV station commissioned a series years ago. At the time, nobody could imagine how somebody can create something new from this material. But contrary to all expectations, Hannibal turned out to be a surprise hit.

That was also due to the excellent cast of the leading role. The Dane Mads Mikkelsen embodied a completely different form of the monster. He assisted Hugh Dancy, Laurence Fishburne and Gillian Anderson. What made Hannibal so different was the intoxicating look of the series and its calm narrative rhythm. The writers based the story on the first novel by Thomas Harris. Red Dragon was also the book that was originally first made into a film. Dr Hannibal Lecter only played a minor role in Manhunter and did not cause a stir.

That changed immediately in Hannibal, too. The focus of the series is FBI agent Will Graham, played by Hugh Dancy. He has the unique gift of empathizing with the psyche of murderers. But Graham is mentally disabled as a result. To support him, his superior, Jack Crawford, played by Laurence Fishburne, provides him with a psychiatrist. Of all people, Dr Hannibal Lecter is supposed to support the unstable specialist in his investigations. From now on, the two unequal partners will determine together. Little does Graham know that the worst monster is in his immediate vicinity. He repeatedly picks up the knife himself without revealing himself. The series takes place in Baltimore, Maryland. The locations give the story its very own mystical flair.

Hannibal is a visual feast for the eyes from the first to the last minute. Mads Mikkelsen’s restrained play gives the plot an entirely new dynamic. His Dr Lecter is tall and athletic. The producers were so impressed by series creator Bryan Fuller’s concept that they directly commissioned the first season of the series. That should prove to be a gold handle for series fans. Movie buffs will notice that Fuller named each episode in terms of culinary art.

Dr Lecter created the grandiose staged dishes under the guidance of a culinary advisor. Hannibal is too demanding for a worldwide series hit. The series became a huge critical hit, but the producers cancelled it after the third season. The loyal fans have been waiting for more episodes. Series makers and leading actors would like to realize this; even a movie was under discussion for some time. So far, Bryan Fuller has not been able to convince any broadcasters of a fourth season.
