BEING JACK UNTERWEGER
They really do let anyone be a journalist. Case in point: Jack Unterweger, an Australian man who went to prison in 1976 for the murder of a teenage girl, became a star journo upon the publication of his autobiography and his parole in 1990. With his newfound personal and professional freedom, Unterweger then went on to murder another 11 women. John Malkovich stars as the serial killer as he embarks on a posthumous book tour in The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a serial killer, a chamber opera written and directed by Michael Sturminger, with music by Martin Haselböck.
