Psychopaths...they'll charm you, manipulate you, then ruin your life. But, not all of them with a gun or a knife. In this extra ordinary documentary, suspected psychopath Sam Vaknin goes in search of a diagnosis...was he born without a conscience? "Making a movie with a psychopath," declares I, Psychopath's director Ian Walker, "is a little like poking a snake with a stick." Unwittingly, the filmmaker becomes a textbook victim. Joined by Vaknin's long-suffering but ever-loyal wife Lidija, the threesome embark on a diagnostic road trip to the world's top experts in psychopathy in which Vaknin (and his wife) undergo a battery of rigorous psychological tests and neuroscientific experiments. He is the world's first civilian to willingly seek a diagnosis for psychopathy. The former corporate criminal turns out to be a way-better psychopath than any of them imagined. By the end, Walker almost calls it quits on his own film rather than spend another day with its main subject".--ABC website.
