How on earth can Robert Blecker and Daryl Holton be friends?

That question pulses at the center of Robert Blecker Wants Me Dead, a surprising and often disturbing documentary film about passion, murder, and the American death penalty

Robert Blecker is one of America’s most impassioned crusaders for capital punishment. A self-described 'emotive retributivist,' Blecker teaches at the New York Law School in lower Manhattan. From those unlikely headquarters, he conducts a devoted one-man crusade to save capital punishment from the mounting wave of moratoriums and death-row commutations. Blecker teaches his young proteges that death is the only just penalty for 'the worst of the worst' – the small fraction of the nation’s convicted murderers who have surrendered their right to live by the irredeemable viciousness of their crime. His fundamental credo is: 'Some people deserve to die, and it’s our obligation to kill them.'
