Winner of the Filmmaker's Trophy at the 19th Annual
Sundance Film Festival in the documentary competition, Licensed
to Kill is a disturbing look inside the minds of seven hate-crime
murderers. Composed of actual prison interviews and archival
footage, director Arthur Dong's documentary tries to unearth the
mentality behind each homicide. The spectral variety of responses
is both fascinating and troubling. Because there seems to be no
common pathological thread tying the men together except blind hatred the ensemble begins to
resemble just another crosscut of American society. And that, needless to say, is an unsettling
perspective.
