I will give this movie an 8 out of 10, only because it takes an issue that is generally considered to be absolutely horrific and puts a human face to it. While I don't endorse any behavior like this, or the actions perpetrated in the film (and it is not the director's intent to glorify it in any way), the point of view offered reminds us that the perpetrators of these acts are still human. It's a very rare talent for a director to be able to make you feel for the characters, even though you know they will carry out a horrific task later. That's what makes this movie so genuinely different from the likes of "Bowling for Columbine" or other documentaries about school shootings. This movie doesn't try to make you understand, it doesn't try to explain the reasons. It simply wants to remind you that they were human as well. Despite how our culture has come to hating criminals and becoming detached because we see them constantly on the news. Sometimes we need to be reminded of that, before we lose our humanity as well.
