Very underated serial killer HBO movie.

Personally, it's probably one of the most underrated films I've ever seen, very very compelling and engaging. Many films that portray real serial killers are simply exploitative, poorly made, quickly written b-horror films, however Citizen X is one of the very best historical accounts of a real serial-killer. Of coarse Sutherland and Rea are fantastic, along with Max Von Sydow, but I think Jeffrey DeMunn who plays the killer himself, Andre Chikatilo, is truly brilliant. DeMunn, has always been one of my favorite underrated actors, an...
