I've not seen it but I've heard that this is just an average movie with 2 incredible performances which makes it an above average movie. I vote rent. Especially since you have some 300 some odd unwatched dvds.

that's about right. The performances are good, but the movie is nothing special.

Thought the film was good....excellent performances. Too emotionally draining to watch more than once.

I love serial killer flicks as well. I decided to go ahead and buy it. Will probably watch it this weekend.

I'd say yeah, it's a great movie. Charlize and Christina did a GREAT job!

I had no problems with watching this for the 2nd time, last night. Charlize was outstanding and her performance was in my head upon waking...after that 1st viddey. I thought the film was well done and it just made me want to learn more about Wuornos and that entire period during the killings. I just snagged Aileen: Life and Death Of A Seriel Killer because I thought it made a nice companion disc.

I say....worth repeated viddies.
