Review

  • This is a strange documentary compared with the usual shallow and judgmental documentary or the plain one sided make-it-seem-two-sided television show bordering reality TV. It is strange in many ways. The main characters are not normal. Not in the medical sense, but in the way they interact with the world and their take on life, or death. Than Ronson is getting in the story trying to get it, instead of trying to reveal it the way regular journalists do. Well, it takes a lot more time. Ronson is speaking of years of interactions with the main characters, while something like Supersize Me would take one to six months plus the promotion. Finally it is an illustration of what happens when the State takes a moral stance. Pretty much like any other prohibition based on the high moral stance of politicians, be it prostitution, alcohol or heroine.
