If I gave this five stars and said I really liked it, it would be creepy. I associate five star films with experiences you want to repeat. "Monster" I want to repeat like Schindler's List -- thanks once, but again? No.

This is the incredibly sad and well executed (pun intended) story of the posthumous Aileen Wuornos. For those interested in the subject of Aileen and actual interview material, try the two Nick Broomfield documentaries during her incarceration and around the time of her execution. Nick Broomfield himself makes for an interesting conenction into the world of this all too human monster.
