Tales of the Grim Sleeper (15)

Documentary, Crime

Nick Broomfield digs into the case of the notorious serial killer known as the Grim Sleeper, who terrorized South Central Los Angeles over a span of twenty-five years.

The critical consensus

Broomfield and editors Joe Bini and Marc Hoeferlin construct their film like a maddening and gripping episode of Columbo.

The director is back at his best.

****(*)Rebecca Ellis, Little White Lies, 29/01/2015

Tough viewing, but the film-maker’s commitment is unmistakable.

Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 29/01/2015

In this admirable, compassionate documentary, Nick Broomfield undertakes research that should have been done by the Los Angeles Police Department more than 20 years ago.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 30/01/2015

A deeply troubling journey into the dark side of the American Dream.
