A true story about the killing spree of Charlie Starkweather and CarilAnn Fugate.
I have only seen the film once. However it had a profound effect on me.Superb acting from Tim Roth and Fairuza Balk and brilliantly directed by Bob Markowitz I could never understand why it never received its due critical acclaim. Maybe Badlands took all the plaudits but I much preferred Murder in the Heartland.Although the haunting music of Carl Orff in Badlands was exceptionally well done.I have always been interested in the Charlie Starkweather and CarilAnn Fugate case and have devoured every book I could get my hands on.As to the expressed innocence of CarilAnn, well I'll guess we'll never know her true involvement. Would anyone know if it has ever been released to the public on Video or DVD Or when it is due to appear on TV again?
