Enclosed further information on the film.
"A new release from the small Picture Players studio, "The Killing of John Lennon" is a gem from the world of independent cinema ...This is a well-made and thought-provoking film that touches the heart of a very sensitive issue, shedding light on the life of a man many still consider a monster. Made without the support of a major studio, it is truly an indie masterpiece".
"A riveting, disturbing glimpse into the mind of John Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman, during the days leading up to his deadly confrontation with the rock star outside the Dakota. Lines lifted verbatim from Chapman's own journal give actor Jonas Ball's unforgettable performance an eerie, chilling precision"
(Tribeca Film Festival)
"Anchored by a fearless, commanding lead performance by newcomer Jonas Ball as deranged assassin Mark David Chapman, "The Killing of John Lennon" is a harrowing, impressionistic, widescreen tour-de-force that unfolds with the propulsive urgency of a scrapbook thrown into a howling wind."
