Movie Review

Bill Hagmaier ( Elijah Wood ) is relatively new to the FBI when he gets hit with a tough one: Talking to convicted serial killer Ted Bundy ( Luke Kirby ) to find out who he is and what motivates him to do better at his crimes to understand. He is part of a newly created unit that has set itself the goal of analyzing the psychology of such murderers, and also to use this knowledge in future cases. But what sounds so simple in theory turns out to be an almost impossible task. Bundy is notorious for not wanting to talk to anyone, especially cops and the like, for whom he has nothing but contempt. And he lets Hagmaier feel that too at first…

As terrible as serial killers and their deeds are, they still hold a tremendous fascination for people. Hardly a week goes by at Netflix without some documentary on the subject appearing, and others have also entered the lucrative true crime documentary market. In addition, there are regular feature films that deal with the lives of famous killers. Charles Manson ( Charlie Says ) is particularly popular, not least because of the cultic elements with which his bloody deeds were connected. Another example is Jeffrey Dahmer ( My Friend Dahmer), who murdered young men and teenagers for several years and is unforgotten to this day, also because of his necrophilic and cannibalistic tendencies.

And then there’s Ted Bundy, who has been the subject of a lot of discussion in recent years. In addition to the obligatory true crime documentary Ted Bundy: Self-Portrait of a Serial Killer, he also received a Hollywood endorsement: Ironically, Beau Zac Efron embodied him in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, emphasizing the charm of the boy next door, who also happens to be a lunatic killer is. Ted Bundy: No Man of God refrains from maintaining this friendly facade. Here we meet one of the most notorious serial killers in his later years when he was already in prison. There he no longer had to charm anyone to get close to them. Rather, he consistently pushed everyone away from him.
