Albert Fish review

MV5BMTUzNjgzNTE0MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTQyMTM0MQ@@. V1 SX640 SY720  Albert Fish

ALBERT FISH tells the horrific true story of a sadomasochistic cannibal and serial killer, who lured children to their deaths in Depression-era New York City.


I think this could only be called a documentary in the very loosest form of the meaning. Sure all the lurid details are here, but they’re presented in such a tabloidesque fashion that I felt more titillated than informed afterwards.

    Borowski’s done a whole series on American serial killers, all of them in a rather lurid, prurient style. I have to admit, the psychology of these men fascinates me, but I’d rather read a well written and researched book on the subject than watch a sensationalistic documentary.
