Critic Reviews for Karla
Things in the movie, like the slasher movie music cues, hint that Karla has exploitation in its veins. The reasons for making it -- and seeing it -- remain more than slightly suspect.
You can call it guilty of exploitation, tastelessness or insensitivity if you like, but its greatest failing is a certain deadly pointlessness.
No audience, Canadian or otherwise, will learn anything here outside of the macabre facts. Worse, they won't feel anything either, not even -- and this is inexcusable -- for the victims themselves.
Movies about real life serial killers are released frequently. It's when they're missing grief that they become an insult to the memory of the dead.
Audience Reviews for Karla
Rather disturbing movie. Perspective is seemingly biased. News accounts of actual crime told a different tale, so I am not sure that I am buying the ole "he made me do it" perspective. She is just as much of a nutcase as he is, I think.
Very good acting and entertaining BUT this movie was not real enough or explicit enough for being based on real sickening events.
To me, any accomplice to murder is just as guilty as the person committing it. That's why I am so repulsed by this movie, because it portrays Karla Homolka as a tragic heroine, a victim. Anyone who knows how tragic and sensitive this case was knows that Karla is no victim. There is no reason that a movie should be made of it, especially not one like this.
