Nick Broomfield's companion piece to his 1992 documentary "Aileen: The Selling of a Serial Killer," (both about notorious prostitute/serial killer Aileen Wuornos, the subject of Charlize Theron's "Monster") is creepy, powerful, thought provoking, and perversely entertaining. As well, it offers more insights on Wuornos and her crimes than "Monster" did. It includes gripping interviews with an almost certainly insane Wuornos shortly before her death (where she proves to be a coarse, inconsistent, and strangely likable screen presence). As well, there are interviews with Wuornos' mother, her best friend, some of her former lovers, and her former lawyer. Broomfield (a sort of Michael Moore with manners) also talks about Wuornos' turbulent life in detail, with such disturbing facts as she slept in the snow in the woods, was molested as a child, and from the age of nine was a prostitute. Certainly not for the faint of heart, but highly recommended.
The DVD is in widescreen (1.85:1). The image is roughly broadcast quality, with few scratches. Being a documentary, these details barely matter. The only extra is a trailer for "Monster."
