A very good movie

It has been a while since I have watched this flick and I should re-watch it at some point but there is no denying that this movie really impressed me the first time around. Back then, everybody was floored by Charlize Theron who had a solid career so far but thanks to this movie, she definitely reached another level. And, indeed, Theron gave a fearless performance which went beyond getting a few ... read more

The performance's in this film delivered by Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci are nothing short of amazing. Theron goes under a dramatic transformation to become Aileen Wuornos. The beautiful starlet is hardly recognizable. I don't want to give any spoilers. But I can say without hesitation, watch this film.

Why can we sympathy Aileen?? She is in terrible environment. In the society everybody looks down people like her but how could she escape from that situation?? I thought it was really hard and it's hard for normal person….

Description: Critics have universally praised Charlize Theron's performance in Monster, and the praise, for once, is astonishingly deserved. The gorgeous star of The Italian Job and The Cider House Rules vanishes into the character of Aileen Wuornos, a real-life serial killer and prostitute who murdered at least seven men in Florida. Monster traces her relationship with a young woman named Selby (Christina Ricci, The Ice Storm, Buffalo 66), which intertwines with Wuornos's murder spree. This remarkable movie finds compassion for Wuornos but unflinchingly faces her brutal crimes; Theron expresses this woman's horrific life history without sof ... (more)

" How love, poverty, desperation, rape, exploitation or plain circumstance could create a female serial killer. Transforming one of the most gorgeous women on the planet into "monster" was also a strike of genius, especially since Theron is phenomenal and completely unrecognizable. It also makes me ponder how much Ricci's Selby "formed and pushed" Aileen Wournos over the edge. Incredible feature debut for Jenkins too."

"I have to sympathize with Roger Ebert's sentiments of this film when describing Shelby and Lee's (Aileen) relationship as being based on something more fundamentally complex than simply 'sex'. It had be something very daring for the underrated wizard-talent of Patty Jenkins, to put such a sympathetic spin on a true life killer, heaped in controversy for the fact that she was a woman and yes, she killed men. Also, she apparently dated women, or at least one that we know of. I found this film to "
