Intense and repulsive, from the first 5 minutes of the movie you know what you're in for. A well done character study of a real life monster.

In dramatizing the dark, disturbing world of an actual serialkiller, The Golden Glove is deliberately bothersome and disturbing, while yet somehow reassuring that even such revolting circumstances have their limits.

This movie can provoke a nauseating visceral reaction due to the utter depravity Honka committed. Incredible acting. I felt extremely uncomfortable throughout many scenes in this production. Disgusting, horrific, grimy, so immensely realistic..the list goes on. I need to take a shower.
