Critic Reviews for Licensed to Kill
Offering a harrowing and disturbing look at homophobia and anti-gay violence, Dong's courageous docu, winner of 2 major awards at the 1997 Sundance Fest, is an intelligent exploration of sexual prejudice and hatred in contemporay American society.
It's a simple idea for a film: Do interviews with people in prison who have killed gays and ask them to explain why they did it, but the riveting result is far from simple.
Documentaries need energy, or they can become as dry as reading a dictionary. Dong's questions too often illicit little interest from the prisoners.
Audience Reviews for Licensed to Kill
One of the most powerful documentaries I have seen. And very sad too how religion still pays a very strong part of killing innocent people. That, ignorance, and/or homophobia.
