  1. Linda's rating of the film Monster

    finally watched it, amazing performance by Charlize Theron. The film deeply depressed me though.

  2. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Monster

    La narrazione mostra la graduale caduta nel baratro della protagonista. Sviluppo abbastanza classico senza guizzi degni di nota.Lei ha un buono spessore psicologico, ma sa un po' di già visto. Molto interessante il rapporto fra le due donne.C'è una certa critica alla società, anche se risulta un po' superficiale. Il lato tecnico non brilla ma nel complesso convince abbastanza.Theron in forma, ma un po' sopra le righe

  3. spasmolytic's rating of the film Monster

    Pretty accurate depiction of lesbians circa 2000.

  4. Mariana Mara Nascimento's rating of the film Monster

  5. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Monster

    Perhaps not the film that some of the victims deserved, but the film that Aileen Wuornos deserved, which is fine as a corrective as most people will never look past her designation as a "monster" anyway. I'm a bit of a sucker for aggressive levels of sincerity as long as the sincerity is not deployed in a cloying way. 'Monster' comes close, but the artfully artless performances anchor it. A solid, moving film.

  6. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Monster

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Monster

    Une oeuvre relativement glauque et désespérée, servie par deux (grandes) actrices étonnantes, profondément investies par leurs personnages bordeline, qui dégage un étrange et persistant malaise, imperceptiblement et en durée... www.cinefiches.com

  8. Ethan's rating of the film Monster

    Charlize Theron gives the performance of her career here and received a well deserved Oscar for it. Theron plays Wournos with a certain humanity that balances out the psychotic and paints a tragic tale of who would be labeled as the first female serial killer in America.

  9. Erik F.'s rating of the film Monster

    The script is often TV-movie-level, but Theron's jaw-dropping performance really elevates it.

  10. smndvdcl's rating of the film Monster

    An astonishing performance from Charlize Theron in a taut character study based on a true story. Like 'Dead Man Walking', the spectator is challenged to empathise with a serial killer. Wuornos has a much more understandable rationale for her crimes than Poncelet. Theron's bravery to fully inhabit her psyche and tackle the cruelties of female exploitation is remarkable.

  11. Charlie Boisvert's rating of the film Monster

  12. JanaMat's rating of the film Monster

    3 ★ for Charlize Theron's performance

  13. INZER's rating of the film Monster

  14. malachiesipucheala94's rating of the film Monster

  15. Vincent Maël's rating of the film Monster

    Die Liebesaffäre zwischen den Protagonistinnen ist gewiss eine melodramatische Strapaze, die dem Werk seine Grundessenz raubt und die erwartungsgemäße Härte entschleunigt, was sich jedoch durch trostlose Highway-Striche und der Bebilderung einer schäbigen Subinstruation des harmonischen Floridas ausreichend ausgleicht und trotzdem Qualität entsteht. Wo es Leben gibt, gibt es Hoffnung(-slosigkeit).

  16. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film Monster

    Nearly a perfect film, nearly. Though, the documentary about the prisoner it was based on is a good counterpart for Theron's portrayal was (though compelling) nowhere near as ambiguous as the real person. She would say or do anything to get what she wanted which was assisted-suicide, the real woman was an even better actress than Theron. It is what she wanted from day one of the caper.

    amazing charlize theron + a standout queer moment in my childhood

  21. venenatis's rating of the film Monster

  22. Zac Weber's rating of the film Monster

    Charlize Theron is magnificent. The rest of the movie is okay, but it contains some laughable Hollywood moments like the Don't Stop Believin' skate jam and the romantic angle in general.
