This is by far the most powerful documentary I have ever seen and possibly the most powerful movie I've ever seen. HBO picks the best documentaries. The pure evil that Melvin exudes is unfathomable. We are taken along on a harrowing journey of a family terrorized by sexual abuse, and shown its long lasting effects in the mostly maladjusted, and sometimes very screwed up adults that these poor children became. DO NOT miss this film if you can catch it. Be ready to be shocked, moved, and deeply disturbed.
