Where are we???,
This review is from: Gacy (DVD)
I know the John Wayne Gacy story, I live in Chicago, how could I not???
But where are we in this movie? The scenes follow no order and give the audience no clue as to where we are in his life at any given point in the movie. Not only that, but most of the scenes seem to "cut off" too early as if they were edited for TV to fill a time-slot. The whole thing is one big confusing mess.
That being said, the portrayal of Gacy by Mark Houlton was really good. He looks like him physically and pulls off friendly, yet scary appearance very well. He makes this movie worth watching. THe one thing that the writers/directors did well in this was to not get psychological. They simply portray what was actually done, without trying to explain WHY Gacy killed people. He was a serial killer, nobody knows what he was thinking... THe movie succeeded in staying very objective.
Worth watching on a rainy day.
P.S. NOt really much discussed about POGO the clown, even though it's on the cover.
