Film Comment - 07/01/2008
"Tommy Lee Jones's powerhouse performance as sociopathic loner Gary Gilmore may be the biggest reason to see this 1981 TV adaptation of Norman Mailer's THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG."
Based on Norman Mailer's novel, this version contains scenes of nudity and violence that were added later (the film was originally an NBC miniseries). With chilling neutrality it tells the story of multiple murderer Gary Gillmore, who demanded the death penalty rather than spend his life in prison.
