The film was written and directed by Tim Metcalfe, who found a copy of Panzram's journal in a used-book store, read it and spent five years getting it onto the screen. He does not, however, ask the right questions about Lesser, and the film softens some hard edges.

Showing an unlikely bond between a convict and a prison guard, both Woods and Leonard play their characters very convincingly in this hard-hitting thriller.

Killer - A Journal of Murder turns out to be more like Killer - A Journal of Love.

87 minutes of two guys ''bonding.'' I went from expecting James Woods to slice and dice, to thinking - just kiss already.

More for fans/admirers/researchers of Charles «Carl» Panzram, however, it does contain a good amount of quotable material. Some critics apparently were expecting some sort of Horror film; it carries on more like a slow-paced, dramatic indictment of the mechanically indifferent U.S. prison system.

[b]VHS[/b] First Viewing, 1 Metcalfe film seen

James Woods is one silly bastard. The box cover says he deserves an Academy Award for this film. I think I would give him a pat on the back and a thumb up for effort, but no best actor Oscar - not even consideration. It's more of a MadTV sketch than a film exposing the injustice of the judicial system in America. Watch either [i]Paradise Lost [/i]or the second [i]Aileen[/i] documentary (you should see both - actually, you should have SEEN both).
