In the department of shameless family promotion, I’d like to inform readers of a new documentary film opening in select cities today called Robert Blecker Wants Me Dead. It explores the moral complexity of the death penalty issue by portraying the odd relationship that develops between Robert Blecker, a New York law professor and strong proponent of the death penalty, and Daryl Holton, a death row inmate who shot and killed his own four children with an assault rifle in Shelbyville, Tennessee in 1997. And it was produced by my brother.
You can read a review in today’s Washington Post here, and the New York Times did a feature on it a few weeks back. The trailer is below. And if you’re in the DC area, it opens at the E Street Cinema tonight.
