February 19, 2010
I saw this film and this woman never had a chance. I know she lied about a lot of ************* in her life, but half truths can be seen in her lies. One has to think that sometimes some women never have a chance, her story represents the insightful example.

It's the interviews with Aileen herself that steal the show as she insists her mind is being controlled by radio waves -- her Mad Hatter personality beyond the scope of Broomfield's disingenuous tone to interpret. Full Review
Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle
Sometimes demure, sometimes funny and other times flat-out crazed, Wuornos was effusive and confrontational when Broomfield filmed her just before her 2002 execution in Florida. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Wuornos was unambiguous about one thing: She wanted to die. In the end, that's the only assurance the movie provides. It's an odd kind of closure for her and for us. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
The most damning account of the failure of the criminal justice system in America anyone is ever likely to see. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
Los Angeles Times
She was guilty, no doubt, but as this immensely moving film makes clear, Aileen Wuornos was also heartbreakingly human. Full Review
