  • There's Theron, like a force of nature, compelling us to go beyond TV-movie supposition and look Wuornos straight in the eye. Her raw and riveting performance makes Monster an experience you won't forget. show more

  • Theron is nearly unrecognizable in the role. She's also astonishingly good. Obscuring the movie star has liberated the actress. show more

  • A seasoned director might have known when to ask Ms. Theron to do less, or nothing at all; as things stand, she acts at every single moment. But what brave and ferocious acting she does. show more
