Feminist Terror in Hannibal

Sady Doyle for In These Times:

For feminist filmmaking to succeed as a political statement, it has to succeed at being decent film, and that’s what Hannibal does. It’s horror with a profound respect for human life, and for the human beings who watch it. That, more than anything, is why it deserves the “Best Drama on TV” label.

I think that Doyle is exaggerating the feminist qualities of Hannibal, but she is spot on in her overall review of the show. Hannibal is one of the very best shows on TV right now.
