Trivia

Robert Keppel had been a University of Washington Criminology Professor when he was approached by Detective Dave Reichert to help solve the Green River Serial Murders case. Keppel was a profiler, who had helped track down Ted Bundy. While on death row in Florida, Bundy contacted Keppel offering to find the killer he had dubbed "the Riverman" in hopes that he would get a stay of execution. Keppel then began a series of psychologically grueling and often combative interviews with Bundy. Keppel became obsessed with the case and with Bundy, eventually coercing him to confess for the murders of eight women still listed as missing from his reign of terror. The real life relationship between Keppel and Bundy served as the inspiration for the movie, Silence of the Lambs (1991) staring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster. The Green River Serial Killer was finally brought to justice on November 30, 2001 when advances in forensic DNA proved that suspect Gary Ridgway was in fact the killer. On November 5th, 2003 Gary Ridgway pleaded guilty to 48 counts of aggravated first degree murder in a King County, Washington (Seattle) courtroom. Due to a plea bargain centered around Ridgway's assistance in helping authorities find missing victims, Ridgway avoided the Death Penalty. See more »

Quotes

Robert Keppel: If you know someone, someone close to you and you put together all the pieces; all the laughter and the tears and the silences all the deep telling moments of their life then, well then you can inhabit them and feel part of them. But if you've known someone with a soul dark, so terrifying and you've crawled into every foul corner they think they've hidden from you and you've inhabited them... How do you... How do you come back? Can you return to how you used to be?

Bit of a waste...
5 May 2019 | by vetle_svalastogSee all my reviews

Subpar directing and writing limit good actors, interesting stories and complex characters.

Thats whats happened here. No much more to say about it.

Picture; Red Dragon, based on real events, but worse.
