Sweet Serial Killer'💘💘*contains some spoilers*
on 12 May 2015
Since I am a Fan of Serial Killer movies, I once owned this movie and so glad to have the DVD back in my collection again. This is the Best True Life Serial Killer Biopic ever, which won Golden Globes and Charlize Theron won an Oscar ( uncannily on 29 February 2004 on the Serial Killer's Birthday ) for her performance as Aileen Carol Wuornos also known as "Angel of Death" in the Tabloids. The Story is based on the life of Aileen, and out of all the Serial Killer childhoods, her Youth is the most heartbreaking, Until She met Selby Hall, the fictionalised version of her Lover and Partner, Tyler Moore, is when Aileen's life turned around, and at the same time came to a turning point on her deadly Destiny. So why is this Serial Killer movie so Different? A breath of fresh air, the make Up and Prosthetics and mannerisms that Charlize Theron did is Spot on like Aileen's Butch persona, including her philosophical way of thinking and feisty spirit, but made her an all round Human Being. Also it is a Love Story with a Difference, that is why it is a stand out from other Serial Killer movies. A Love Story of a Serial Killer is a bold and brillant step of our times when society and communities have different people, different minds from all walks of life, when one tragic soul finds love then the past catches up with them and they spiral out of control, Serial Killers are indeed addicts to their own impulses.
The Film does have brutal moments that make you cringe bestowed on Aileen by a Misogynist, and pang of Guilt that Aileen felt on one Victim who tried to talk to her and being sympathetic. It's all there. sweet romance, Serial Murder, and One Woman's Life that is a tragic nightmare from the beginning to the very end. This movie will always stand the tests of time
