"Fantastic performances all around, huge props for the leading actor, she is simply amazing! Excellent score, directing - the whole nine. This movie had me repulsed one minute, furious the next and then balling my eyes out. The obvious will keep you riveted, the more obscure will tease your mind and test your ability to separate right from wrong in a traditional sense. From beginning to end, if you have a heart you will find yourself suffering with her, feeling the confusion and crippling disappointments while at the same time, admiring her courage, dedication and willpower. If you catch on, you will notice that she is the only character in the film with any honor. I never write reviews on anything but this in my opinion, was a masterpiece. I hope it touches you as well..."

"Nick Broomfield's follow-up documentary of "The 1992 Interviews" is chilling and unforgettable. Most of the movie he interviews Aileen right up until the day before her death. This one was a lot better than his last documentary. He discovers her childhood home and teen years. He also talks with her long lost birth mother. This was the most insightful and interesting documentary done on Aileen."Monster" of course, is the best film of the year. This is the 2-pack to get."
