Ishbel’s DVD review

As the night’s get darker, I have found myself borrowing lots of free DVDs from the Information Store.
My colleagues Lucy and Graham recommended a film I wouldn’t usually have borrowed: 
 “Aileen, life and death of a serial killer” (on shelves at 791.4353)
It made for both thought-provoking and disturbing viewing. It is a documentary about America’s first female serial killer, covering her troubled childhood, the violent murders she committed while she was a prostitute, ending with interviews given during her time on death row.
The film leads us to question whether the death penalty should be given to someone who appears to be insane. The film gave me plenty to think about, and its message will stay with me for a long time – I highly recommend borrowing a copy. Find it in the DVD lobby area, or ask a member of staff to point you in the right direction.
