Acclaimed filmmaker Errol Morris paints a fascinating portrait of four obsessed eccentrics. Morris weaves interviews with a wild animal trainer, a topiary gardener, a robot designer and an expert on the naked mole rat together with old movies, cartoons and stock footage for a compelling, kaleidoscopic look at the very thin line which separates madness from genius.
Mr. Death the rise and fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 508 libraries worldwide
Provocative and chilling true story of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr., the son of a prison worker and a self-taught execution expert who consulted with prisons across the country to make capital punishment more humane. When Leuchter is called in as a high-profile expert in a sensationalized Canadian Nazi war crimes trial, his ego, bravado and absurd testimony reaches international media prominence. Ironically, what Leuchter thought was going to be an apex in his career serves to ruins it.
