Aileen – The selling of a serial killer (1992)
The last interview with the real monster – life and death of a serial killer (2003)
A coldblooded murderer (or rape victim?) seeks justice by propagating her version of the truth. A confused moviemaker stumbles among loose ends searching for his version. And a hopeful viewer, out for drama and closure, wants the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Everybody gets frustrated. On showcase are sloppy police work, strange ex-partners and greedy luck-seekers as well as weirdo lawyers, sensation-prone media and election-minded politicians.
These provocative documentary stays in my book. Should ideally be viewed together, the follow-up radically changes the perspective.
