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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. Charlie Boisvert's rating of the film Monster

  11. malachiesipucheala94's rating of the film Monster

  12. 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).

  18. venenatis's rating of the film Monster

  19. 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.

  20. Milly Hampton's rating of the film Monster

  23. Eka Vakri Riski's rating of the film Monster

  24. Susana Bessa's rating of the film Monster

    Ever since I saw it back in 2005 (if I recall it right), I have never again watched it. Nor will I ever. It is too good and disturbing to be awarded with a second watch. Nevertheless, it is important to congratulate Charlize for this amazing performance! Her career's greatest.
