A conversation with Joey Marra, producer of Alex Gibney’s latest feature documentary Crazy, Not Insane, presented out of competition at the 77th Venice International Film Festival. The film follows the research of psychiatrist Dr. Dorothy Otnow Lewis, who studied the psychology of murders. In this interview, among other things, Marra shares his thoughts on this being an important reflection on the death penalty.

Crazy, Not Insane: Why do we kill? Why do some of us kill, and others resist the temptation? What makes a serial killer? Dr. Dorothy Otnow Lewis, a psychiatrist who’s examined numerous serial killers, including Ted Bundy, sought to answer these questions. Her research videotapes, seen here for the first time, show evidence of multiple personalities formed from childhood trauma. Fascinated by the human capacity for ruthlessness, Lewis is a different kind of homicide detective, less interested in what happened than why.
