With an appropriately bloody and dashing full moon finale came the close of three amazing seasons of Bryan Fuller's Hannibal, hands down some of the best television ever made in the history of the medium.
Most theater does not translate well into film. The film genre invites expansion and theater can feel claustrophobic. Unless claustrophobic is what you want as in the case of Roman Polanski's adaptation of David Ives' stage play inspired by Sacher-Masoch's novel, Venus in Fur.
Hannibal is a monster, of course, but Mads Mikkelsen's performance and the show's great writing for the character limned a portrait of a very human monster, one whose terrible actions begin in a somewhat understandable place.
