Talk about this film in the forums

The Killing of John Lennon is a chilling insight into the mind of Mark David Chapman, the 25 year old narcissist who gunned down John Lennon outside his Dakota apartment in New York in 1980. Meticulously researched and filmed on actual locations where events occurred, it is a gritty and imagistic examination of a celebrity stalkerís mind leading up to the kill and a look into his descent into madness and exorcism.

Independently financed and filmed over three years in Hawaii, Decatur Georgia and New York, The Killing of John Lennon is unflinching in its presentation of the truth. It does not set out to condone or exonerate the shooting of Lennon or his killerís desire for fame. Itís theme of bombticking loneliness and, by extension, the notion that America is a nation of angry strangers who vent paranoid resentment toward public figures, couldnít be more resonant today.
