No Man of God

Crime, Drama, History | Streaming: August 27 | Theaters: August 27 | IMDb

Starring: Elijah Wood, Luke Kirby, Aleksa Palladino, Robert Patrick

Synopsis: In 1980, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man. NO MAN OF GOD is based on the true story of the strange and complicated relationship that developed between FBI agent Bill Hagmaier and an incarcerated Ted Bundy in the years leading to Bundy’s execution.

 

Cody’s Review: This is neither the story of the serial killer Ted Bundy nor the FBI profiler Ted Hagmaier, it’s the story of the two of them together. The movie begins in 1985, shortly after the launch of the FBI’s profiler program that aims to interview and learn from serial killers and other violent criminals. We follow along over the course of four years as Bundy and Hagmaier get to know each other through a series of interviews, ultimately leading up to the execution in January of 1989. In truth, this is both the story of one of the most famous serial killers in history, and also the man that got to know him better than anybody. At times, the interviews feel like a psychological game of cat and mouse, and at others they are simply friends. While this is not a documentary, but rather a retelling of the events, it benefits from Ted Hagmaier’s direct input. In many ways, this gives a context to Bundy that was never available in the past, aiming to remind people that no person or story is ever as simple or two-dimensional as it is often made to appear. No Man of God is surprisingly welcoming, despite it’s dark subject matter. The story has good pacing and it’s only near the end, with a single story, that some people may find difficult to hear. As far as technical details go, this looks and feels like a film from the late 80s, but with naturally higher production value and techniques. The sets and wardrobe match the faded color tones and institutional look that were all too common. Acting is spot on, never feeling over the top or sensationalized. Verdict: No Man of God obviously isn’t for everybody; it’s not an exciting or action-packed film, but if you’re at all curious, I would recommend it. Of course, for fans of true crime, or those singularly interested in stories about Ted Bundy, you don’t need me to say this is for you.
