Public hangman #1

Most Brits are familiar with the names Ruth Ellis, Derek Bentley, Timothy Evans, John Christie and Lord Haw Haw. We know of their trials and their eventual fate at the gallows. What is not so well publicised is that they all met their maker at the hands of the same man. His was the last voice they heard and the last pair of eyes they looked into. That man was Albert Pierrepoint.

Living a secret life as a master hangman, as well as a humble grocery deliveryman and loyal husband, Pierrepoint's reputation as the most highly regarded executioner in the land results in him executing some of Britain's most infamous murderers including Derek Bentley and Ruth Ellis, and also the Nazi war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg Trials. ...

"The Last Hangman or Pierrepoint / O Lavador de Almas Direção: Adrian Shergold Ano: 2005 Sinopse: Albert Pierrepoint tentou evitar, mas terminou seguindo os passos de seu pai e tornou-se carrasco em 1934. Aos poucos seu conceito cresce, devido ao uso sofisticado e frio de seus métodos, o que o faz ser o mais respeitado e temido carrasco da Inglaterra. Quando abandonou a profissão, em 1956, Pierrepoint tinha mais de 600 execuções em seu currículo."

Timothy Spall's performance is brilliant as he conveys the way that Pierrepoint moves from being utterly confident and comfortable in his role as Public Hangman Number One to being progressively disturbed and disillusioned.

You might feel that a film focused on such a bleak subject matter is not for you, but Pierrepoint is drama at its utmost best. It's style and imagery remind me so much of Mik” read more
