    Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes

    ★★★½

    As interesting as this doc is, it feels like the “tapes” angle was successful with Bundy and they tried to replicate it here, but Bundy’s tapes are way way more interesting. 

    Bro, fuck this guy. 33 victims, 29 buried in his house, and it took years to catch him? Wtf was happening in the 70’s.

    So my mother is currently a Sannyasin, I've been to Osho base retreats, and I've done a lot of these meditations. With that in mind, I have no particular attachment to Osho's teachings, I think there's some good, some bad, and there's no reason to devote your life to his teachings. *cough* Mom *cough*

    Anyway, I kept hearing how this was a documentary about a cult and its crimes and I was really interested to see how something I'd been…
