Crop And Save
I wasn´t really prepared for a film like this. When I saw the Oscars I had only seen "Somethings Gotta Give" and not "Monsters" so I was like "How could Charlize win over Diane Keaton, one of the best actresses ever?" I didn´t think that a film about a prostitute killer could be so good and so touching that it would give the leading role an Oscar for best actress. While watching this film I felt sorry for Aileen, who really wanted a good life for her and her new girlfriend, the only person in her whole life who liked her, thinking that maybe there was a plan for her too. A chance to live a normal life, like everyone else. I guess she didn´t have that luck anyway. She gave up that for her lover Selby. For her she went back to the prostitution, so she could maker her happy, but after that her "John" was about to rape her, she got enough. Once again her loving Selby got her get back in the hard rough world. It was too much for Aileen who was probably by that time really fed up with those men. So she killed them one after one. Like she was punishing them for what they were about to do, buy sex. For everyones sake I wish it went a better way.
This film is one of the best ones I´ve ever seen. Believe me or not I did feel sorry for her for all the things she went through in her life, and that it had to end up the way it did. She was a killer and a victim at the same time. I believe that Selby also was guilty (manipulating her to kill).
Now I understand why Charlize got her Oscar. And she did more than deserve it. It must have been really hard playing this part, for which she probably will be most known for.
