In a farewell address to the nation one US president warned of the potential rise of misplaced power and the unwarranted influence of the country’s military-industrial complex.
That speech – which also cautioned against squandering the US’s precious natural resources – inspired the basic premise of the sequel to Foxtel’s Secret City, which starts shooting in Canberra later this week. (more…)

The actress intends to understand how the mind of a serial killer works in one of this season’s revelatory series.
Charles Manson’s death in prison this week has brought the spotlight back to this magnetic figure among serial killers, precisely the profile around which Mindhunter revolves, the latest from David Fincher (the director of Seven, Fight Club and Gone Girl). “This attraction to serial killers is nothing new,” Anna Torv, one of the protagonists of the Netflix series, explains to ‘Grazia’ from Los Angeles, “figures like vampires and werewolves have created an entire mythology around these types of crimes for a long time.”
However, if serial killers are a recurring element in crime shows and movies, don’t expect the typical uses here. In Mindhunter they speak about serial killers but there is no action, nor blood, nor crimes or victims on the screen. There are only photographs of the homicides.

Anna Torv: “Serial Killers are real, not monsters that live under the bed”
The actress stars in “Mindhunter”, a show that explores the origins of applied criminal psychology.
Television and cinema have given shelter to some of the most perverse minds of humanity. Stories about serial killers, mobsters or criminals of any kind have fascinated current viewers as crime novels and noir did at the end of the 19th century.

But everything has an origin. “Mindhunter”, the latest Netflix phenomenon, travels to the late seventies to discover how psychology began to be applied to criminal investigations. At a time when everything was yet to be discovered (such a common term today like ‘serial killer’ didn’t exist back then and investigators invented ‘sequence killers’) two FBI agents decided to think ‘outside the box’ and search for new police methods. They were advised by the researcher Ann Wolbert Burgess, to whom the actress Anna Torv gives life. The actress, who is under David Fincher’s command in this production, spoke to ABC about the show and how digital platforms have ‘radically’ changed how we watch TV today. (more…)
