disturbing and perverse
7 August 2013 | by oundjianmSee all my reviews

A pointless and perverse look at THE biggest and most sadistic serial killer of the western world. Not only does this documentary seem to enjoy what it is describing through the narration but through most of the people's faces who are being interviewed. A faint grin and smile can be seen on some of these disturbed people, even the priest sometimes looks like he is enjoying the descriptive nature of his interview.. He even describes his last conversations with the convicted inmates as "whatever it was, writing letters, making phone calls, singing songs, listening, listening and listening."

If you believe in murdering people I would at least recommend you watch a more progressive and humane approach to this ancient barbaric way of disposing of human beings. The documentary is called "How to Kill a Human Being". At least that documentary thinks about alternative methods and ways in which America or Iran can kill their population. (And yes I chose those two countries not just to shock but to drive home a point. Iranians are as likely as Americans to think they are better than the other country but the bottom line remains they are both serial killing machines).

Everyone is still going to watch this documentary because of pure curiosity but I urge the younger people to remember what is actually going on while they watch this documentary.. This is not justice, this is murder.

ps: I remind the younger viewers not to be patronising but because this documentary has a 14 year old certificate and that is a scary thought to me. anyways... Watch if you must but remember, murder is murder is murder... :/
