Serial killer Andrei Chikatilo (Jeffrey DeMunn) is faced with the psychological profile of him written years before by shrink Dr Alexandr Bukhanovsky (Max von Sydow) in HBO’s tremendous TV movie Citizen X.
…The adolescence of such a person is as a rule painful, because he [is often] subjected to [the] laughter and humiliation [of] his peers, and at a time when success among them is the subject of his secret dreams.

His sexuality is not noticeable to [those] around him.
