Excerpts from Chapman’s diaries are featured in The Killing, done voice-over style as fans watch the horrific re-creation of Lennon’s murder in New York City. The Killing honestly makes an effort to take viewers into Chapman’s head, but as his famous crime has never been fully explained this theatrical attempt falls a little short.
