Seeing Freaks Uncensored is a treat, One of the best!
7 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Freaks Uncensored" is a really great film. I saw it years back when I lived in New York, at the Anthology Film Archives in lower Manhattan. I had to wait in the pouring rain and got a standing room ticket. The people clapped like crazy at the end because the film was really inspiring. Some people there, who had expected to see a exploitative shock documentary, might have been disappointed because this film was so "real" and not just made to shock (Although it is often very shocking.) I just bought the DVD and wasn't disappointed watching it for the second time. As a matter of fact the movie moves so fast, it was great stopping it so I could make some popcorn. ome people might have wondered why the leper footage was in the movie, but, even though it departed from the sideshow theme, I liked the filmmakers' showing the audience that freakdom is often a serious medical issue.
