Anyone dismayed at the way in which Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal of cannibal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter tipped over from the suave malevolence of his Oscar-winning performance in 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs into camp, cartoon-like villainy for 2001’s Hannibal, will be cheered by Mads Mikkelsen’s subtle reinvention of the character for TV. The second series finds his Hannibal becoming a consultant to Laurence Fishburne’s FBI Special Agent Jack Crawford, while his psychiatric patient, FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), languishes in a mental asylum, accused of his doctor’s crimes. And those grisly crimes, and the gruesome but stylish gastronomic feasts that ensure from them, are what make the show such a treat… if you have the stomach.
HANNIBAL, THE COMPLETE SEASON TWO, featuring 13 episodes, is released on DVD and Blu-ray by StudioCanal.
