Any Truths Negated By The Destruction & Death
3 March 2020 | by AudioFileZSee all my reviews

It would be too generous to the perp to give this film high marks. That is because it veers into a kind of sympathy that a kernel of truth must be heard at any cost. I say kernel because it may be truth that the technological revolution threatens humanity in many ways, but the wholesale destruction of it would be even more destructive. Thus there is little rational reason to the "manifesto's" call for the elimination of all technical and industrial progress. And, of course, there is no humanity in killing and maiming the innocent. TK was a very warped serial killer and it negates any small truths he claims to stand for. If he wasn't so pathologically unfeeling perhaps he could have been balanced in both his thinking and approach. That was not the case and this stands out here. I rate this a 6 because it is simply humanizing a monster too much yet if viewed with that caveat it is not without some value. By the linear chronological reviewing of Kaciynski's long rein of terror it is both fascinating yet harrowing however.
