Documentary Reveals Diary

Jack The Ripper ...There are too many coincidences, in the diary of James M., to not be conclusively related to the prostitute murders at that time.
Well documented and graphical film. I tend to have an open mind and agree that James M.was the real murderer. He may very well have been lashing out at the evil wife, although, it would have been kinder to focus his rage upon her, not others. His break in the killings could also been attributed to his physical and mental condition. He enjoyed taunting the police; therefore he lavished in his fame, whoever the killer was.The viewer should watch and decide for themselves

suspect? This was truly excellent, I've never heard of this man Maybrick but I have always wondered why The Ripper picked the name Jack. Oh boy, just getting started in 'Ripperology' and now there's more research to do. Highly recommend.

Bloody fascinatingly!
Verified purchase
Very interesting, and here I thought the Ripper was probably that Polish man suspect? I don't know now, but was a very compelling watch. I wonder how much more has been learned on the subject since 1993? To bad pretty Florence turned off the sex on husband James, and stepped out into the night! That can make a man go crazy, even without the Arsenic!

Interesting viewing, ghastly pictures
Verified purchase
This was sort of homemade but very interesting. It makes a compelling case. The one thing it does not say is why Jack suddenly stopped. Fear of getting caught, perhaps? The timeline of the events and the main suspects life were a bit confused. The original pictures are included and ghastly, not for the faint of heart, so be warned.

A study of the ripper.
Verified purchase
This movie is a moving study of the yet to be solved mystery of the ripper. This happened during one of the most terrorizing times in English history. A good film!

Great documentary of an extremely popular subject. As a documentary, it lacks some of the excitement of a well done drama on the subject, but it does put forth a plausible theory.
