Charlize Theron (The Italian Job, Trapped) explodes in a magnetic, Oscar(r)-winning (Best Actress, 2003) performance as convicted killer Aileen Wuornos. Severely abused and unloved, Aileen immersed herself in the dangerous world of highway prostitution...until she met Selby Wall (Christina Ricci, Sleepy Hollow), a naïve girl who was Aileen's last chance at a normal life. But ultimately all Aileen understood was violence, and nobody imagined the nightmare that awaited the seven men standing in the way of her happiness. A critically-acclaimed film from writer/director Patty Jenkins.

Director Patty Jenkins is prominent in Monster's two above-average 15-minute featurettes. "Based on a True Story: The Making of Monster" combines news broadcast; interviews with Jenkins, Charlize Theron, and others; a look at Theron's makeup; and signs of Aileen Wuornos's real-life world, including her best friend and the real Last Resort bar. Jenkins and composer BT discuss the score in the other featurette, including how "the score was conceived from the ground up in 5.1" (the DVD's sound is all-enveloping) as well as the use of the hurdy-gurdy and the contribution of Journey's Steve Perry (even this featurette is in DTS). There's also a film-mixing demo, in which the viewer can add or subtract (but not change the levels of) the dialogue, sound effects, and music in a two-minute segment of the Fun world scene. Surprisingly there's no cross-promotion of the simultaneously released interview disc, Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer. --David Horiuchi
