An impressive documentation about a prolific serial-killer.
A chilling recounting of Soviet serial killer Anatoly Onoprienko's crimes. If you are a fan of crime documentaries (Cold Case Files, etc.) this account of not only Onoprienko's life but also how the transitional political climate and even the Ukraine weather, facilitated these crimes, will be of interest to you. The reporting is objective with only the barest of assumptions voiced however the interviews with the victim's families are few. There is also a lack of Onoprienko's family interviews. I would have liked more interviews in this documentary but this does not detract in any way from the feature. There is gore and crime scene footage but none of it is sensationalistic or dramatized for effect and all of it is necessary to the recounting of facts. This documentary also refrains from asserting or discrediting any psychological and theological theories, they merely report on what the doctors and family members opine and leave you to decide if Onoprienko was insane or if he was evil, and that is refreshing as most reporting nowadays has some sort of agenda.
