Nick Broomfield's second documentary on Aileen Carol Wuornos, a highway prostitute who was executed in 2002 for killing six men in the state of Florida. This second installment includes the filmmaker's testimony at Wournous's trial.
Even the Devil has a sad tale to tell and Milton told it in glittering prose attaining unapproachable literary heights.
I saw Overkill some time ago. There were some respects in which I found it superior to Monster. Aileen was far less a sympathetic character in Overkill. Her motives were more clearly self-aggrandizement and anti-social. True she suffered the sting of betrayal; Ailleen was betrayed by someone she had trusted and cared for but such is the way of the street.
I find it interesting how the same story can be retold from a different perspective. Just compare the old tear-jerker weaper I WANT TO LIVE made in the more liberal 1950s with the made for TV version from the 1970s.
