Thought Crimes: The Case of the Cannibal Cop


An official selection of the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, this HBO documentary follows the story of former NYPD officer Gilberto Valle, who was convicted of conspiring to kidnap and eat women in March 2013. Dubbed “The Cannibal Cop,” Valle argued it was all a fantasy, but the prosecution’s narrative convinced jurors otherwise. His story made headlines not only for its chilling details, but also because of its landmark decision regarding a man many consider “patient zero” in a growing thought-police trend across the nation. Featuring unprecedented, intimate interviews with Valle and his family, as well as insights from lawyers, journalists, psychological professionals and criminal experts.
