The film's explanation of Rickey Ray Rector, who incurred some degree of brain damage after committing multiple murders when he shot himself in the temple, is somewhat manipulated to cast Rector in a sympathetic light. Rector was, despite his minor self-inflicted injury, judged to be competent to stand trial, as his brain damage was minimal and he expressed an understanding of the charges against him, the difference between right and wrong, and what the death penalty was on multiple occasions.

Super interesting topic. Not saying her work isn't valid, but how it's presented is one-sided. Knowing it is a highly divisive area of psychology, no scrutinizing opposing views are explored. It's difficult to take the content as unbiased - even if they're on to something. I didn't get anything out of it. The doctor seems like a sweet lady and I do appreciate her humanitarian approach.
