You may not agree with everything Dorothy Lewis says in "Crazy, Not Insane," but you come out of the movie alive to the place where evil and insanity meet and then fall back apart.

Dr. Lewis is clearly sharp... and the movie makes you want to read her work, not stick with Gibney's overview.

While the documentary might not convince those who prefer a black-and-white picture of crime and justice, for anybody with an open mind, it'll definitely make you think.

It's the names of the murderers that draw us as opposed to the doctor who spoke with them... But filmmaker Alex Gibney is careful to centralize Lewis and her work, creating a fascinating portrait in personality contrasts.

The prolific Mr. Gibney makes art out of the most unlikely subjects, and in Crazy, Not Insane his expressionist's inclinations are given full rein.
