Movie Info

While qualifying the United States as a "land of one million murders," director Sheldon Renan may have had too large a mass to handle in 90 minutes. Footage covers actual killings, interviews are conducted with killers like Sirhan Sirhan, and scenes of crazed hostage-takers are lifted from news broadcasts. Rather than an in-depth study of the reasons for and effects of the rising murder rate in the U.S., the director has chosen to emphasize the violence and the need for gun control to help lower
