Movie Review: ‘Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop’ on HBO

“Dubbed ‘The Cannibal Cop,’ Gilberto Valle was convicted in March 2013 of conspiring to kidnap and eat young women. Valle argued it was all a fantasy; the prosecution’s narrative convinced jurors otherwise. Valle was facing a possible life sentence when filmmaker Erin Lee Carr began visiting him in prison. After 22 months behind bars, his conviction was overturned in a stunning reversal. Carr was there for his release and subsequent house arrest to examine a life arrested. But the question remains: given the chance, would he, could he, have done it? ‘Thought Crimes’ unravels the conflicting stories of a potentially dangerous young man and the unexpected consequences of our online activity.”
