Hannibal proves to be cinematic poetry in its purest form. This episode proves why this might be the best currently airing show, if not one of the best shows ever.
4 July 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

So where to begin complimenting a show like Hannibal, when it's almost perfect on any level, technically or creatively.

The second season in itself may be one of the most accomplished seasons of a television show ever and this episode specifically summarizes exactly why.

There's a lot to take in as a viewer, the filmmaking is absolutely polarizing. Not only is the direction in every episode as good as it gets, the more subtle parts are just as good. What many may have noticed by now is the absolutely superb sound design, every episode is almost constantly accompanied by a very atmospheric, almost hypnotizing soundtrack, which perfectly symbolizes the state of mind our main characters are in. While episodes centered around Will Graham are accompanied by a very wild, chaotic and disorienting soundtrack, episodes like this one, that are centered around Hannibal are accompanied by compositions that remind of operas, of classical music, specifically here the piano piece composed by Hannibal Lecter himself.

The cinematography is just as superb as almost any other aspect of the show. It's grim, gray and dark. The whole look appears very sterile, like it's hiding something. The costume designers aren't to be ignored here as well. Hannibals attires are very formal and clean. Hannibal is being described as wearing a man suit at one point in the show, he's hiding his whole self underneath his exquisite appearance.

Obviously there's much more, but I wanted to point out some things that maybe not everyone knows to appreciate. And there's a lot to appreciate here, maybe more than in any other show airing these days.

It's beautiful, it really is. When Hannibal prepares human meat in the most professional way imaginable while being accompanied by a beautiful classical piece of music in the background, you can sense that Hannibal is a pure connoisseur. He's a composer, a psychiatrist, a surgeon, a star cook who appreciates the true nature of culinary art. He's not insane, or a psychopath. He is absolutely conscious of who he is, he's simply said an artist.

I could keep on writing for hours, there is a lot to analyze and take in, as I already said. Fact is, that Hannibal is cinematic poetry which is very rarely found these days. This show shapes up to be a technical and creative masterpiece that maybe comes along every 20 years. It's a hypnotizing, riveting, gruesome, transcending show, where you as a viewer are easily able to suspend disbelief and get completely lost in it.
