Just, Melvin is Just Incredible!
25 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just, Melvin is just incredible. Over the years I made a promise to myself that since I myself am a director I would never comment on another director's film good or bad. But after viewing Just, Melvin and seeing that no one else had commented on it yet I felt obligated. James Ronald Whitney weaves together a documentary in which he eliminates all the secrets and lies that have plagued his family for three generations. Just, Melvin centers around Melvin Just; Whitney's grandfather. Through the film the family's cache of secrets is uncovered and Melvin is shown for what he is a serial child molestor and we discover some of the heinous crimes he committed against his children & step-children. At one point in the film Whitney actually confronts Just in an interview and shows restraint when provoked by Just that made me respect him as a person in addition to already respecting him as a film maker. The climax is the family at Melvin's funeral getting to put to rest some of their demons because they finally have closure. This was more than just a documentary, it was a long overdue cleansing that he and his family needed to go through in order to heal. I wish him prosperity in his career and wish his family love and empathy. Keep fighting the good fight.
