Trivia

According to an interview he gave to the New York Times in 2010, this movie was made during the middle of Wes Bentley's decade-long, extremely serious addiction to cocaine and heroin. He said in that interview that he only accepted any movie roles during that time so that he would have money to buy enough drugs. See more »

Mickey Gravatski: Can you stop?
James Lemac: What are you asking me, if I can be cured? A cure is inconceivable to them, because the crimes are too unforgivable. They simply want people like us dead. But death doesn't end evil. It merely sets it free.
Mickey Gravatski: Are you evil?
James Lemac: If I choose to take responsibility for what I've done.
Mickey Gravatski: Do you?
James Lemac: Do you?

An Amazing Thriller
27 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was outstanding. It explored the mind of a compulsive killer, without holding anything back. It explored his childhood and abuse; the flame which lit his compulsion. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Wes Bentley was amazing as the desperate, drug addicted film maker who set out to do the documentary on the killer. Also, the supporting cast made it a great ensemble piece. I recognized Kenny Johnson from "The Shield" and Beth Grant from "No Country for Old Men". Mark Borkowski, who played the killer, gave an honest and intense portrayal of Bentley's tortured subject. I can't understand why this film didn't get a theatrical release. I know it toured the festivals this year but, man, it would be great to see this film on the big screen. I highly recommend it.
