Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003)
Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer is a feature-length documentary film about Aileen Wuornos, made by Nick Broomfield as a follow-up to his 1994 film Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer. The film focuses on Wuornos' declining mental state and the questionable judgment to execute her despite her being of unsound mind.
The film climaxes in a final interview with Wuornos just one day before her execution, where Broomfield finds it hard to understand how the same person in front of him was deemed 'of sound mind' the day before by Florida governor Jeb Bush's examiners.
The film received a limited theatrical release in North America several weeks after the Aileen Wuornos biopic Monster opened to generally positive reviews. Released on January 9, 2004 on three screens, Aileen grossed $16,158 ($5,386 per screen) in its opening weekend. Playing in six theaters at its widest point, its total North American box office gross stands at just $97,362
