My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Here's a documentary that's right up my ally.  This kind of thing fascinates me.  This picture is interesting as hell and the best part is it doesn't give any time to a dissenting opinion. Of course this subject and behavior is offensive.  We all know it so why is it necessary to show someone saying it?  Thanks Borowski for leaving those talking heads out of the picture.  There are a couple of the subjects that mention some opposition they've encountered like the gal who runs the Jeffrey Dahmer tours in Milwaukee and the protesters she had the first few tours (a tour that I'd love to take, BTW).  You get to see a lot of interesting artifacts and artwork from lots of names you'll recognize and a few you won't.  It's a fascinating film about an unusually fascinating subject.  Highly recommended.  It's currently on Netflix streaming. I'd love to have a DVD of this with a bunch of extras.  This is great stuff.
