John Douglas

  • À quoi reconnaît-on un esprit prédateur ? Qu'est-ce qui pousse un criminel à agir ? Naît-on avec des pulsions meurtrières ou sont-elles dues à des circonstances extérieures ? Que
    ressent-on avant le passage à l'acte ?
    Après avoir étudié et interrogé pendant plus de 25 ans les plus grands tueurs en série, John Douglas est capable d'anticiper leurs gestes, voire de les pousser aux aveux.
    Dans Le Tueur en face de moi, le très célèbre profileur du FBI dévoile ses méthodes au travers d'entretiens avec quatre des plus grands meurtriers de notre époque. En revenant sur ces affaires, il nous laisse entrevoir, au coeur du mal, l'être humain dans toute sa complexité.


  • Le livre qui a inspiré la série de David Fincher sur NETFLIX

    Au fil de ses vingt-cinq ans au FBI, l'agent spécial John Douglas est devenu une légende vivante, considéré comme le premier profileur de serial killers. Il a suivi et résolu des dizaines de cas, dont le dernier lui a presque coûté la vie.
    John Douglas est entré dans l'intimité et dans l'esprit de tueurs en série pour parvenir à établir leur profil et à les arrêter. Il a ensuite formé une nouvelle génération d'agents spéciaux et a notamment inspiré à Thomas Harris l'agent Jack Crawford dans son roman Le Silence des agneaux.
    À partir de ce témoignage passionnant, glaçant et unique, David Fincher a créé une série de fiction qui se déroule en 1979 et reprend certaines affaires de John Douglas.

In keeping with the approach of Palgrave Close Readings in Film and Television, this collection is devoted to the detailed critical analysis of specific long takes, explored in terms of how they function within their contexts, how they shape the visual field, the meanings they generate and the effects they create. The Long Take: Critical Approaches brings together essays by established and emerging scholars (all but one essay commissioned for this volume) in an exciting collection that analyses works from a range of filmmaking traditions, from the 1930s to the present day, selected to represent varied long take practices and to explore associated debates.
