Aileen Wuornos:I'm tired of this re-election jazz, they're just trying to get promotional... ladder-climbing... political prestige from this, and I'm sick and tired of this. I'll probably get three more death row sentences, then I got to go to Pasco, and Dixon for two more death row... how many times you gotta kill me?See more »

Painfully sad, 17 June 2004
Author: George Parker from Orange County, CA USA

"Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003)" is a documentary about the life of the notorious Florida serial killer, Aileen Wornous, who inspired the much lauded film "Monster". Not to be confused with "Aileen Wornous: The Selling of a Serial Killer (1992)", also by Nick Broomfield, this film provides background on Wornous who was selling sex for cigarettes as a 9 year old child in Michigan and follows her life from criminal trials to death row up to her execution (which was not shown). The film paints a portrait of a troubled woman who descends into paranoid schizophrenia as the end nears all the while maintaining the unexpectedly undaunted, matter-of-fact demeanor of one very much reconciled to her fate in spite of being trapped in a system with no recompense for abuse in childhood nor insanity in adulthood who well may have been failed by the criminal justice system as well. A worthwhile watch for those interested in the Wornous story, especially as a follow-up to "Monster". (B)
