Renton47's rating of the film Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr.

A film of unflattering contradictions, specifically how we treat those we disagree with, which in turn martyrs them for their own cause. This might make me sound more sympathetic for Leuchter than I am - the man seemed to stumble and fall into life, and is perhaps only qualified in his taking roles that others deemed immoral. One of Morris' gauchest films.
