Great look inside stories that should be heard. However,it is very incorrect in basic facts which for a documentary are real make it or break it.
Great look inside stories that should be heard. However,it is very incorrect in basic facts which for a documentary are real make it or break it. It is a beautiful look into the lives of those who are struggling inside and out some of the most ultra hasidic communities. However the information provided about the hasidic world,sectors,groups and all aspects of their lives, Religion views of each of these groups and so on are simply not correct. Aside from this influencing the stories of those who should be heard,it also gives a very unrealistic vibe for anyone with knowledge about the Jewish world. Wrapping up dozens of different hasidic communities into the the term "hasidic world" "views" or even "religious laws" is poor reasearch and/or understanding at best if not tendentious. And that's what makes a dacumentry good or bad. Seeing as this is a documentary,well,it's pretty bad. Perhaps calling it "Leaving the Satmar world" (a cult like hasidic sect) Which according to the stories they all indeed were part of,would make this a 10 star review.
This feels very Soap Opera like,think "Quanico",yea.. As a lot of others said,its funny how many unrealistic mistakes you can make,shame. In that sense "The brave" is much better even though it has the same soap opera vibe. However,Madani as a "strong" female (not so great attempt but they are trying and you can tell)is better to watch then on the brave. Im still watching,up to episode 7. Yea its bad but there's a story so for now if im real bored.. Seal is the only non disappointing one so far.
