Editorial Reviews

He was a brilliant mathematician who turned his back on his training and society. Alone in the Montana wilderness he conducted an 18 year campaign of terror that stymied law enforcement agencies nationwide. For years very few people knew the name Theodore Kaczynski. But the "Unabomber" was one of the nation's most wanted criminals killing and wounding scientists engineers and high-tech professionals with carefully-crafted homemade letter bombs. Here FBI agents including Oliver "Buck" Revell who headed the Unabom investigation trace the often-frustrating course of their long inquiry from the first bomb in 1978 to the arrest of Kaczynski at his remote Montana cabin. The program also traces Kaczynski's life before he dropped out of society interviewing his college roommate and a childhood neighbor. From suburbia to the life of a hermit from promising career to the most-wanted list this is a fascinating look at the fractured life of one of the 20th century's most enigmatic and famous criminals.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Very Basic Documentary, Nothing more October 24, 2012
Ted Kaczynski, known as the Unabomber, is a mathematician and anarchist. A child prodigy, he was accepted into Harvard at 16, and later earned a PhD in mathematics. In 1971, he moved to a remote cabin. After watching developments destroy the wilderness, he decided to start a bombing campaign. From 1978 to 1995, he sent 16 bombs to universities and airlines, killing three people and injuring 23. On April 3, 1996, federal investigators arrested Ted Kaczynski at his cabin in Montana, he pleaded guilty and received four life sentences for his actions. BIOGRAPHY - TED KACZYNSKI is a 50-minute long documentary about this complex man and the crimes he committed.

The Unabomber case is fascinating, and the man behind these crimes is a very unique character to say the least. Learning more about killers and criminals is always interesting to me, Criminology being my passion. I wasn't expecting much from this documentary, and I was right. If you have seen episodes of A&E's BIOGRAPHY series then you know what to expect: An "A to B" documentary, starting with the person's childhood all the way to their demise ( death or arrest ), a very straight forward type of a show. That's the main problem I have with this episode: It's predictable and the information presented to us is very basic, I've learned nothing new while I was watching this DVD. Also the fact the episode is only 50 minute long is also disappointing, 50 minutes to cover such a complex case is not enough. The narration is good and the people interviewed are interesting, so it's not terrible, I've just seen better.

Overall I only recommend this DVD to people who wants to add to their collection just about any documentaries they can find about criminals and Serial killers.
