William Bibbiani Reviews 'Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer'


In Nick Searcy's "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer," Earl Billings stars as convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor whose practice was responsible for the murders of live birth children, and at least one woman under his care. Dean Cain and Sarah Jane Morris co-star in a film structured like a "Law & Order" episode, with half the film devoted to his apprehension, and the second half devoted to his unusual trial.

In his review at The Wrap, William Bibbiani says "Gosnell" is "cinematically sound, engaging and well-acted," and singles out Earl Billings's performance as "terrifying." But he says at the end, "Gosnell" devolves into "ghoulish sideshow grotesquery" that sullies the film, and clearly undermines any suggestion that it is apolitical or impartial.
