Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"There are no serial killers in the Soviet state... It is a decadent, Western phenomenon."
  - Bondarchuk (Joss Ackland)

Product Description:

Based on a true story and the book "The Killer Department" by Robert Cullen, CITIZEN X is the tale of the Soviet Union's eight year pursuit of a bloodthirsty serial killer who claimed the lives of 52 people (mostly teenage girls) between 1982 and 1990. A brilliant forensics expert (Rea) may hold the clues needed to finally apprehend the killer, but could they stop him before he strikes again' Sutherland won the Golden Globe for Supporting Role Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Made for TV in 1996 and the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Special in 1995.

Plot Synopsis:

This acclaimed drama, starring Irish actor Stephen Rea, tells the true story of one Soviet policeman's crusasde to capture a serial killer. But Detective Burakov has a problem: according to the government bureaucrats, communist Russia doesn't spawn such murderers -- that distinction belongs solely to the capitalist west. So they hinder every one of Burakov's efforts, which include contacting FBI experts who have worked extensively on such cases.
Meanwhile, even as the frustrated detective continues to fight the entrenched powers, victims -- often youngsters -- continue to die...
