 Maybe it was the  freezing room (lets be sure to pack the hoodies next time), the tiny desks, my general discomfort, or whatever it was but that first half of this movie dragged on and on! But I think I figured out why. Correct me if I’m wrong. I had no one to attach myself to! Again, let’s blame it on the weekly theater visits, but I’m just so used to being bombarded with characters and their storylines, and it’s kind of what keeps my attention, yaknow. The only individual character we’re really given to hold onto is the murderer. Everyone else is just a force: the victims, the policeforce, the crooks, etc. I just wanted this guy to be caught already, show me how please just show me how! and then, dun dun dun, it all changed. We’re really given faces to remember and names, and suddenly I’m attached to these beggars and thieves, and hating on the inspector, and wanting to hug franz the burglar. Movie’s finally got my undivided attention and I loved it.

In fact, I may have gotten a little too into it? They kept repeating that they had to “render him harmless” and I’m pretty sure I whispered back at the screen “we know what we have to do”. CUT OFF HIS HANDS, I SAY! Call me barbaric, whatevs. So I’m a caveman, hmm hmm, excuse me, cavewoman. I can live with that.  Then just hand him over to the cops, best of both worlds..

Okay, so I lied a little earlier when I said undivided attention. BUT THIS IS WORTH MENTIONING, no? I kept wandering off to another movie. I felt like at the other end of this film would have been a story like “Changeling”. If you haven’t watched it, you should. I must have watched this movie at least 5 times and its still just as good. Sure, at the moment I didnt have cable or internet, but I had other choices too, I swear. That movie’s somewhat based on real events too. S Angelina Jolie wasn’t some hot single mom, but some creep really did go out killing little boys he rounded up by telling them theyre parents had been in an accident and calming their nerves when they saw his young cousin in the car helping. Seriously, watch it. Or at least read about it. Wineville Chicken Coop Murders. I kind of have a wierd little creeper fascination with googling killers..

 For now, I’ll be indulging in that hobby, I already warned you. So here’s the one M was “based on”. check it out.
