At times, watching Hannibal feels less simply a police procedural, more an adrenaline boost. The opening of Sakizuki encompasses this. Following directly from the previous episode, victim Roland Umber is tearing himself from dead bodies. It's a startling image and one that continues to haunt days later. It is this in which Hannibal continues to succeed, it shocks and humours, forcing the audience into submission. By no means does this make it an easy watch but it certainly stands tall above all other major cable television shows currently broadcasting.

Hannibal Episode 202
Directed By: Tim Hunter
Original Airdate: 7 March 2014
In This Episode…
The “mosaic man” victim, Roland Umber, wakes to find himself in this hideous pile of bodies. We later learn that a lifetime of heroin use has given him a very high tolerance - the amount that killed other people was just a good buzz for him. He tears himself away from the bodies he is sewn to - literally. He is so desperate to escape that he pulls and pulls until his flesh is just ripped away from his body. With big, bloody patches of missing flesh, Roland races, naked, from the silo that held him. As he leaves, his captor drives up, and he wastes no time chasing his escaped paint swatch into the corn field. What follows is a tense cat-and-mouse chase, which ends when Roland comes to the edge of a cliff. »

Matt replied that he hasn't had that happen with Channing, but he does get confused for another star. Read more about his funny mistaken-identity scenario: "I do get confused with Mark Wahlberg a lot, and we just have a deal that whenever we get mistaken for each other we have to be very polite.

Even though technology-focused artist Jonathan Harris has a project at Sundance New Frontier — I Love Your Work, a documentary about the makers of lesbian porn experienced in your own private viewing booth — he’s been stuck. Creatively stuck, that is. And at Transom, he’s penned (and illustrated) an essay, “Navigating Stuckness,” that is both a meditation on creative block as well as, writes the site, “an autobiographical journey with teachable moments.” He’s broken down the stages of his creativity by years, tracking his life alongside projects like the data visualization work We Feel Fine, the storytelling platform Cowbird and […] »
