Most people seem to be missing the point!
8 July 2004 | by (Hull, England) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe some people on here! They post their comments going 'its a sick film, it should never have been released, the film makers are sick' etc etc etc. THATS THE WHOLE POINT!!! This film is REAL LIFE, not some footage that the film makers have created. Of course its sick, this is a film showing that the death penalty is barbaric and wrong by using images that say just that. The film makers are showing their disgust! They challenge you to look into the subjects eyes. Heres the problem with it all you see? These people who say 'its sick, it should never have been released' SUPPORT the ideas of the film makers, in that the death penalty is barbaric, and yet, try to blame THEM for what they have shown???!! Am I the only one who finds that ridiculous? They are hiding behind the issue, dismissing it as the film makers being sick, just because they are not capable of looking real life issues straight in the face and thinking 'is this what our race has become?' No, its just some people who wanted to 'gross people out' with archive footage; so what you're saying is the death penalty isn't to blame? Its just 'sick film makers' who are responsible for it all? All you guys so obviously support the views this film trys to put across, yet then contradict yourselves completely. Think it through next time! Anyway, the film itself is masterful.

The makers get their views across loudly and effectively, to an extent that it may even change the minds of some of those in favour of execution, or at least bring up the kind of discussion you can see from some of the more sensible comments posted here. The fact that the background of any of the criminals is not filled in is also irrelevant to their case. Its not important to the film what the guy did to end up being sentenced to death, its the fact that, by killing him, all we do is sink to their level. We are breeding a society who think death is the answer to all problems, and that is awful! So yes, the images are sick and provocative, but aint that the whole point? Its not the film makers fault, its human kind. We should support this kind of view, and yes, it should be used for educational purposes. Then maybe the next generation will not miss the point at all.
