Plot Summary
In the 1980s, serial killer Andrei Chikatilo (Jeffrey DeMunn) embarks on an eight-year killing spree, murdering 52 people. Lt. Viktor Burakov (Stephen Rea) wants to put a stop to the killings, but the Soviet bureaucracy obstructs him at every turn, insisting a Communist Party member could not be the killer. Burakov is determined to catch Chikatilo, aided only by his cynical superior (Donald Sutherland) and a frightened but determined psychiatrist (Max von Sydow) in this true story.

    This is a jewel of a film, very much overlooked. Everything ***************, from casting to directing to acting to writing. Do not miss this movie. It deserved many more awards that it received. Stephen Rea (lead) and Max von Sydown are stellar in their rolesm, as is "citizen x." The pacing, dialogue, tension: all outstanding. Probably the best movie I've ever seen.
