Featuring a juxtaposition of detailed accounts of terrible acts, brutal behaviour, and interviews from experts and convicted serial killers alike, this grim collection of pain doesn’t shy away from real-life, in-your-face, horrifying imagery, and the escalating levels of crime and murder in the United States. The Killing of America also documents two shocking murders: the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which marks the beginning of a new era of violence, and the murder of John Lennon on the evening of December 8, 1980.
Plot: A documentary of the decline of America. Featuring footage (most exclusive to this film) from race riots to serial killers and much-much more.

A Shocking Statement About Violence in America
Take the “Happiness is a Warm Gun” two minute shocking segment presented in “Bowling for Columbine” and multiply for almost two hours, then you have this excellent documentary named “The Killing of America”. It reminds of what Michael Moore did in his powerful masterpiece, but this film haven’t reach the impact of the Oscar winning documentary since it wasn’t released in the U.S. back in 1982 and not even now (but it’s easy to find on the internet). Leonard Schrader’s film touched a deep wound of America and of course this couldn’t be released in there, it would be misinterpreted and still can be depending of how one view this documentary. Strangely, this was made for the Japan market, another reason of why this wasn’t shown in U.S. not even for home video.
What we have here is a look at some of the most horrendous figures and crimes that ever appeared in U.S. between 1950’s and 1980’s, most of them captured on camera, broadcasted on TV, followed by an haunting voice over from Chuck Riley. There you’ll see the Kennedy’s assassination, John Lennon’s murder, Jim Jones, Ted Bundy, Charles Whitman, Sirhan Sirhan, Charles Manson, Brenda Spencer and other bigger and minor criminal and tragical events recorded on film that took place in America.
The intelligence of this documentary is to provoke a debate on why there was so much violent crimes in America in all the images presented here without reaching the sensationalism of things like “Faces of Death”. It intrigues its viewers by exploring a dark past of one the most powerful countries of the world showing a unflattering and sad side of it. It gives us numbers, facts, informations and impressive things to make its audience think about possible reasons behind this enormous stream of crimes and violence.
The images are haunting and quite depressive, but it should never be viewed as an attack to a country’s past, it’s just a critical piece that exposes its great arguments over a current critical situation of that period. It could happen at any place, and it happens indeed. I’m hoping to find such a brutal and honest film like this concerning the violent facts and images of my country, someday in a future until we have someone with the guts like the creators of this powerful media. 10/10
