I recommend this film
6 February 2011 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

A film based on the book 'the last victim' co-authored by Jason Moss who had an obsession with and was the pen pal of the killer clown John Gacy.

It is a slow, well timed, minimalist, almost art house type film, think it is also directed quite well. It captures the emotional conflicts and feelings of both characters well I thought. Both leads are competent professional character actors. It is quite an interesting subject matter, the film delves into what it would be like for a teenager to correspond with a disturbed sociopath who is incarcerated and finally visit them. It is quite a tragic story that deserved to be told, Sadly Jason took his own life on June 6, 2006, the film states at the end. Anyway I recommend this film
