“Recovering the Mindset”

“Recovering the Mindset” intercuts the same scene from three different interpretations of Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon; Manhunter by Michael Mann, Red Dragon by Brett Ratner, and Hannibal by Bryan Fuller.

Says creator Matthew Morettini, “I’ve focused on the scene where FBI profiler Will Graham visits the cannibal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter ostensibly to ask for advice on a serial murder case but really to “recover the mindset” of a killer so he can catch this new one. Most of the dialogue from the three adaptations come directly from the source novel so it was possible to seamlessly recreate the scene using the three productions. I think it is a very interesting way to compare and contrast the different methods used by the filmmakers. Also, other than filmed works of Shakespeare, I can’t think of another pop culture creation that has been interpreted so faithfully three separate times.”
