Too Good For A TV ReleaseReviewed bystevinmarshallVote: 8/10

I remember following the case of Andre Chicatillo in the newspapers while I was living in South Africa. They had photos of him sitting in his cage while being prosecuted in court. Not, as it turned out, to protect the court members, but to protect him from the public. This was fascinating, albeit morbid, reading. I later heard that a film had been made by HBO about the case, but it was made for American TV. Bummed! Strangely, CITIZEN X got a limited cinematic release in South Africa. I charged down to the local Ster Kinekor complex and duly bought a ticket (I was alone; my girlfriend at the time was only interested in the likes of STEEL MAGNOLIAS and FRIED GREEN TOMATOES). Wow! What a brilliant film. Why wasn't it released to a wider audience? Had it not been made for TV, it could have got an Oscar nomination or 2. There is no way to spoil the ending; who the killer is is never kept from the audience. Jeffrey DeMunn portrays a truly terrifying psycho. He is calm, downtrodden, considered a failure by his wife and subjected to constant ridicule and humiliation by his superiors at work. By committing these horrendous acts, he gets to feel strong, powerful.

Fighting to catch him against all odds is a pathologist, played to excellent turn by Stephen Rea, in one of his strongest performances. He must battle the snail-pace of Russian bureaucracy, the primitive resources he has at his disposal and (above all) the refusal by his superiors to acknowledge that the USSR even has a serial killer. The general in charge (Joss Ackland) says that serial killers are "a decadent, Western phenomenon". Only Donald Sutherland is willing to help, but his help must be under the counter. The ever-brilliant Max Von Sydow plays a Russian psychiatrist who breaks protocol and decides to help the investigators in their quest. It is the first time in Russian history that a shrink is used to build a profile of a serial killer still on the loose, and he has everything to lose if his involvement is made public.

CITIZEN X is brilliantly acted, well written and the music and editing only add to the tension and theme of the film. Excellent support from a horribly underused Imelda Staunton and a real sense of impending doom make CITIZEN X a film worth seeing. This was too good to be made for TV

Outstanding story!Reviewed bybubba-46Vote: 8/10

Imagine being so hampered by a bureaucracy that a one man spends 8 year's of his life, and has a mental breakdown trying to solve a mass murder case virtually by himself! The murder technique is clear, but a government unwilling to admit the truth let's a monster destroy dozens of lives. When I think my job is stressful, I merely remember the true story behind this wonder flick. The devotion to duty of the main character was masterfully portrayed by Rea. The comic (and almost tragic at times) relationship between Rea and the Sutherland character made this one of my favorite movies of the last 5 years. The catching of one of the worst mass murderers in history had me on the edge of my seat. While not nearly as well advertised and talked about as "Silence of the Lamb's", the plot was just as suspenseful. Rent or buy this movie today!

This is a truly remarkable piece of cinematic achievement. From thevery start I was utterly hooked into the (true) story when Lt. ViktorBurakov (Stephan Rea) weeps while performing the autopsies on theremains of the children's bodies. This then is the compelling story ofAndrei Chikatilo, wonderfully played by Jeffrey DeMunn (The GreenMile). In fact, he plays it so well and so sympathetically that theviewer almost starts to pity him, until we remember what he is. Thepsychiatrist Dr. Alexandr Bukhanovsky, wonderfully played by Max VonSydow was utterly believable in every detail, and the point he makeswhen talking about paranoia in the Soviet Union, is made all tooapparent by the behaviour of the local Communist Commissar Bondarchukplayed by Joss Ackland. For me though, the outstanding performance wasfrom Donald Sutherland, proving once again what a superb characteractor he really is. I was almost in tears when he told Burakov how theFBI had so closely followed and admired his work. This film putsSilence of the Lambs into the shade, from the atmospheric and bleakSoviet landscape, to the superlative performances by everyone involved.

I rate this film 10/10
