Pretty good for an off Hollywood flick
7 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't pretend to be a "reviewer"...so don't expect fancy jargon. What I can say is that I am, and have been, an avid movie go'er for 32 years. I have seen many movies...the good, the bad...and the ugly. This is actually quite good. The acting is good, especially by the main actor playing the role of William Bonin. It's a very simple movie with no attempts to pretend otherwise. There is a cameo of the actor who played "Henry, portrait of a serial killer"...which in my humble opinion is one of the most visceral serial killer movies of all time. If you are looking for a "B" movie feel, but with very good acting this is a good one. No blood and guts. No Hollywood afterbirth here, just a simple, accurate, and well directed movie about the life of a real serial killer, William Bonin. Enjoy.
