Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer
Directed by Nick Broomfield
Examines Aileen Wuornos' violent, tortured childhood in Troy, Michigan and her subsequent years on the road as a hitch-hiking prostitute which culminated in murders. In her last interview, conducted by Nick Broomfield at Aileen's request, she said she believed her mind was being controlled by radio waves. On October 9th 2002 she was executed in Florida.
Ten years later after his first film about serial killer Aileen Wuornos, Nick Broomfield returns to uncover why she's changed her story after years of proclaiming her innocence.
Cast: Aileen Wuornos
Wow!!! Just wow! I think the pple to be investigated in this case should be the psychiatrists who said she was stable, sane & mentally fit enough to be executed. Seriously? She was as batsh*t crazy as they come. The journalist of the story had it right on the money. Again, wow!
Want to watch a documentary about a woman who was: psychotic, delusional, borderline, duplicitious, a confessed serial killer and probably should have been institutionalized but was instead executed in a State governed by a bloodthirsty and morally untethered incumbant with a political agenda, after being exploited by opportunistic police and represented by an incompetant and predatory pothead hippie lawyer? You're gonna love this!
I don't think we should be putting someone to death who is so far removed from reality. So sad.
RIP Aileen. I hope you are finally at peace and resting in the comfort and safety of those pearly gates. You went through so much in this lifetime - more than any one person should have to go through. I'm so sorry.
