Movie Info

He was a "Lone Wolf"--years before the term was appropriated to describe self-inspired individuals on a killing rampages who use religion as vindication of their actions. In the days following the 9/11 attacks, Mark Stroman began "hunting Arabs,"--as he described it--his nights occupied by prowling the highways and running victims off the road. To avenge the deaths of the twin towers, he graduated to shooting people whom he believed were Muslims from the Middle East--they were actually immigrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh and a Hindu from India. He killed two and partially blinded a young man from Bangladesh. Thankfully, he was arrested before he could commit his planned massacre of dozens of Muslim worshipers at a local Dallas Mosque. Stroman was going to make a statement "like Muhamad Atta (the hijacker of the first 9/11 plane) did" trying to avenge the senseless killing of innocent Americans by killing innocent Muslim worshipers. To his friends, he had said that he planned to die in the carnage and mayhem. Luckily police got to him first. The Press at the time described Stroman as an "American terrorist." Today we might as well call him an "American Lone Wolf."

"An Eye for an Eye" may very well be the most unpersuasive documentary ever made.

A well-layered film makes a fascinating case for forgiveness and a sharp rebuke of Bible-taught eye-for-an-eye revenge.

In a retribution-driven era increasingly defined by hate-charged absolutes, "An Eye for an Eye" offers a decidedly more reflective vantage point.

An absolutely stirring and poignant documentary about one man's capacity to forgive and another man's capacity to change.

Nov 10, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ziv's tendency to press familiar buttons subverts the pic.

Dead Man Talking here, and horrific as his crimes are, through the power of the film and the most basic kind of love, you are made to feel for him.
