This controversial documentary about the stand-off between an unorthodox Christian group - the Branch Davidians, under the leadership of the young, charismatic David Koresh - and the FBI ... See full summary »
Featuring never-before-seen footage, this documentary delivers a startling new look at the Peoples Temple, headed by preacher Jim Jones who, in 1978, led more than 900 members to Guyana, where he orchestrated a mass suicide via tainted punch.
This is a film to supplement one's research into the events that occurred in Waco, TX between Feburary 28th, 1993 and April 19th, 1993. In and of itself, it is a poor effort. It deals with too many unprovable conspiracy theories and makes too many hasty accusations. If one wants to get an understanding of the truth behind Waco, the best sources are the documentary "Waco: The Rules of Engagement" and the books "The Ashes of Waco: An Investigation" by Dick J. Reavis and "A Place Called Waco" by David Thibodeau. I do not recommend seeing this film until the other sources have been first referenced.
