A forgettable film, except for
21 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only noteworthy part of this film is that it shows Karla in a different light that the warm fuzzy cuddly Karla that was in the interviews with Larry King and others. Evidently, she acted a bit different when the cameras were off. Or it could have been that most attention was focused on her after her conversion, and not before.

According to the story by Lowry, she had just lost a son to a drunk driver who was never caught. So, wondering what kind of guilt this person may or may not be feeling she looks for a criminal to talk to, and finds Karla. And this is 3 years before the media attention. And the two women become "pals." I have nothing good or bad to say about this film except that Leigh, who seems to do an excellent job of capturing the persona of Karla Faye, looks nothing like her and this sort of spoiled everything for me. All and all the story gives a different insight, perhaps one that people did not get to see as much. She was rude, bad tempered, and also not very smart.

One of the most telling moments was when she tells the story about how she taught her Mom how to shoot drugs, because she really loved her Mom and did not want her do do it wrong and possibly kill herself. Hmm, I guess it should be remembered that Karla, unlike other monsters, was not a serial killer but someone who made a stupid decision after a giant binge on drugs and was quickly caught thereafter. I guess I just think it's too bad that she could not have met some more of the right kind of people before all of this happened, but it seems that her world was like an alien planet compared to most of ours.
