Comments on: An American Crime (2007) We Never Shut Up About Movies Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:32:15 +0000 hourly 1 By: Joe Shearer Tue, 24 Aug 2010 20:36:57 +0000 This was a flawed film, but is worth watching, especially if you live in Indy and are interested in the case. It’s hard to watch at times, though. I didn’t think Baniszewski was treated in a sympathetic way, but like Mo’Nique’s character in "Precious" and Charlize Theron’s Aileen Wuornos in "Monster" you do see a little of her motivation, and it makes her character more rounded, but hardly excuses her behavior.
