Tower; 2016 (Documentary) 4 stars This is an awesome (and very sad) documentary about the sniper killer of Texas back in 1966.  I have known of this shooting for a few years and wanted to learn more about it, and this is the story with mainly animated drawings instead of video footage, but you get […]
