THOUGHT CRIMES: THE CASE OF THE CANNIBAL COP is the HBO documentary that explores Gilberto Valle, the NYPD officer that fantasized about killing and eating his wife and her friends on, and became a tabloid scandal of the justice system. Director Erin Lee Carr shares the trailer and clips from the film, and details her experience spending time and shooting with Gilberto Valle, plus the issues of fantasy and freedom and how they play out in the courts. Learn the story behind the story of the “Cannibal Cop” in this uncensored BYOD interview, hosted by Ondi Timoner.

Dubbed “The Cannibal Cop,” former NYPD officer Gilberto Valle was convicted of conspiring to kidnap and eat women in March 2013. Valle had 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.
THOUGHT CRIMES explores all sides of Valle’s shocking story while questioning the ethics of thought policing. In addition to his family and members of his legal team, including Julia Gatto, the film features experts in the field of law, such as Alan Dershowitz and Erin Murphy (NYU School of Law); journalists who covered the story for Slate and New York Magazine; and psychological experts Chris Kraft (John Hopkins University), Michael Welner (The Forensics Panel) and Dr. David Greenfield (Center for Internet and Technology Addiction), who provide insight into a vast and largely unregulated world.
THOUGHT CRIMES: THE CASE OF THE CANNIBAL COP is the feature documentary debut of Erin Lee Carr, who has explored the intersection between crime and technology as video producer for VICE and The Verge.
