Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer (DVD)
Gosnell - Truth is indeed stranger than fiction
The media are only interested in sound bites and click bait. You can only wonder why they passed up this incredible story where truth is in fact stranger than fiction. You owe it to yourself to hear the story and see how women were systematically abused and everybody profiting was silent.
Gosnell: The Trial of Am's Biggest Serial Killer
This movie is so well done. I bought two copies to share with other people, and I haven't had either one of them in my house for longer than a day! Walmart had the best price, but honestly, this is a move I would have paid more for, and hope and pray more people take the time to watch it. This is a truly factual account of a very sad piece of history that barely hit the news...
Evil wil flourish when ignored by good people.
I think this movie is a must see for everyone - not only because of what Gosnell did, but especially because of the support he got from all levels of state and local government, and both the local and national media and even major internet providers that allowed him to get away with his mistreatment of the women who came to him for help for 30 years!
One of the most important movies you will see
Very impressed with the quality of the movie. I checked various sources (NY Times, Washington Post, Washington Examiner) to read of details of the trial when it was taking place. I believe the account to be highly accurate. I'm sure there was some literary license taken. On the other hand, the movie was far less graphic than the reality. Like all stories of series killers, lots of questions are raised. What goes on in the mind of someone like this? How can they possibly become so twisted that they believe there is nothing wrong with their actions or even take pleasure in what they are doing? How did Gosnell get away with what he did for so long? Further, there seems to be a lot of evidence that this movie was surpressed. What are the reasons? Like many movies that are really worth watching, this one is disturbing. Being troubled and disturbed is sometimes necessary (perhaps similar in a way to how I felt after viewing the Murrah Memorial in Oklahoma City).
Gosnell, the Trial of America's Biggest Serial etc
I am shocked by just how mercenary these abortion people are. They have no concern for the lives affected by the act of an abortion. The fact that this movie is based upon actual courtroom dialog makes it even more appalling. Everyone, pro life or pro choice, should watch this movie.
Wish it was in Blu-Ray
I had seen the movie prior to purchasing the DVD at a local "Free viewing" event that is quite popular with Churches and pro-life organizations. Movie is based on the trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortion provider in the Philadelphia area and from most accounts fairly accurate to the actual events so I knew that I had to have it for my collection after watching it. DVD is pretty straight forward containing the movie with a documentary on the making of the movie as well as an interview of the District Attorney that prosecuted Gosnell along with the actress that played her in the. I've not watched the interview in its entirety but it appears that she describes much of the behind the scenes events that she took prior to going to trial including going to a local hospital to see premature babies delivered at the stage of development that the abortions took place and how much effort was needed to perform the abortion with the fetuses being in the shape that they were discovered in. The end of the movie contains actual footage from the police raid on the facility to show how accurate it was portrayed in the movie. I would have much rather gotten this in Blu-ray but I contacted the producers to see if it was available in HD, unfortunately it's only available in that format on streaming services like Vudu, which is why I subtracted a star. This movie isn't for the faint of heart, some of the events depicted in here are rather disturbing, yet it doesn't really show anything gorey or shocking images. The topic of abortion has pretty well caused people to be entrenched in their views so if you're opposed to it, this will certainly cement your opinion with it and I doubt if this movie is going to sway you to be opposed to the practice, but I do think that it certainly might sway pro-choice people to improve enforcement of laws regulating clinics as well as even increasing standards that clinics should have imposed on them.
