As promised, last night was a margarita and a movie night. The movie was Monster. Our friend Lish has been talking up this movie for a few years and now I understand why. What a great movie. Unlike the incredibly sad 21 Grams or the utterly depressing Mystic River, this movie had the right balance. The story was based upon the life of female serial killer Aileen Wuornos. I felt really bad for the main character, but she did cross the line (as serial killers are wont to do).
Though I disagree with the Flick Filosopher’s review of the movie, it is pretty entertaining and brings up some good points.
