Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer
Documentary • R • 2003 • 1 hr 29 min
Sad that people can do such gruesome things and sad to think that if something in her childhood was changed she wouldn’t have done this.
An interesting look at an infamous killer’s last days.
Decent enough documentary to show you everything you need to about Aileen
Interesting doc about a female serial killer.
Such a sad but fascinating story, and one of a woman so failed by the world and humanity, she became a monster. 10/10
I just ended up feeling sorry her. She had a sad life.
Super dark, but such a good documentary.
Rough watch, but psychologically educational.
Extremely painful but it demands to be seen.
This tells us nothing new and seems to simply exist to celebrate the fact that Broomfield was Aileen’s favorite interviewer.
Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer (1993) is a documentary film about Aileen Wuornos, made by Nick Broomfield. It documents Broomfield's attempts to interview Wuornos, which involves a long process of mediation through her adopted mother Arlene Pralle and lawyer, Steve Glazer.
British documentarian Nick Broomfield creates a follow-up piece to his 1992 documentary of the serial killer Aileen Wuornos, a highway prostitute who was convicted of killing six men in Florida between 1989 and 1990. Interviewing an increasingly mentally unstable Wuornos, Broomfield captures the distorted mind of a murderer whom the state of Florida deems of sound mind -- and therefore fit to execute. Throughout the film, Broomfield includes footage of his testimony at Wuornos' trial.
