How do films make you feel? The Independent gets personal about cinema and TV with actors, directors, cinematographers and other people from the continually evolving world of “content” in a new fortnightly podcast hosted by Culture Editor Christopher Hooton.
Netflix‘s new original series Mindhunter has enrapt a legion of viewers with its smart, reserved style. Chris sits down with episodes 3 and 4 director Asif Kapadia to look at how it came together, how Brad Pitt‘s DVD of Senna led to his signing, directing an actor as serial killer Ed Kemper, learning from David Fincher on set, and how a season of TV’s episodes are carved up for different directors.

David Fincher is one of the greatest filmmakers working in Hollywood, with a CV that includes some of the best dramas and thrillers of the past thirty years, from Seven to Fight Club to Gone Girl to The Social Network. Now he’s returned to the small screen with Mindhunter, a tough new Netflix TV drama that deals with the FBI agents trying to get under the skin of serial killers. To mark the occasion, we sat down with the man for a forty-minute conversation about his approach, his style, and his future projects.
