The Killing of America

A study of the cult of death, The Killing of America is a harrowing account of how the American dream quickly turns into a nightmare. Scripted by Leonard Schrader (brother of Paul Taxi Driver Schrader), the film explores the violence evident in the ‘decline of the west’.  Serial killers, terrorism, murders and suicides are paraded before us, a disturbing reminder of the fallibility of the human condition. One of the few mondo co-productions, the film exploited the obsession with shockumentary cinema in Japan.
