    Is this the movie starring Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci? It should be interesting to see Charlize in a completely different role. I heard that she put on 30 pounds for this film.

    I think the movie with Charlize is called Monster.
    That's obviously a dramatizesd account whereas this is a documentary.

    I think both will be very interesting, although I doubt I will see this one in the theatre.
    I'd rent the dvd though.

    I just wanted to say that I saw the movie "Monster" last weekend, and it was excellent. Disturbing. "Boys Don't Cry"-esque. Depressing. But excellent.

    Charlize Theron did a truly amazing job of studying Aileen Wuornos, because she had her mannerisms and vocal style down pat.

    The movie title sounds interesting, but sometimes it can be deceiving too. So I will just wait for more news.

    I just got back from seeing Monster. Unbelievably amazing performance by Charlize - she deserved three oscars for it. I saw a documentary about Aileen Wuornos a few years ago, so I was familiar with the story, but the movie was heartbreaking. Not for the faint at heart, because it was very intense, but very powerful and well-made. I highly recommend it.

    This documentary is another excellent portrayal of this amazing story - Aileen is such a tragic, tragic figure. In the documentary, she comes off as both sweet, viscious, crazy and surprisingly lucid - traits which I thought Monster also tried hard to project.

    If you see this, stay for the song which plays during the credits. It's "Carnivale" by Natalie Merchant which Aileen had played at her memorial service. In this context, it is a crazy, moving, selection.

    I hate the name for that - Monster. What a lame name. I think they could have thought of better titles.

    Does anyone know when it's coming out on DVD?

    man did she deserve that Oscar. Great acting and very good movie. It was depressing as all hell though. Very sad.
