Cropsey... so good
1 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cropsey is one of the best documentaries I've seen in a long time. An interesting look at a society growing up with a bit of fear. It takes you to a place many can relate to even if they didn't grow up in Staten Island. It actually captures a time in the past and successfully brings it front and center in the times we live in now. It was also fascinating to see how history lives with us long after the time has passed. The story unfolds in a bit of a spooky way, which only adds to the documentary's allure. It's hard to look away. The documentary delves into a mystery and how a society deals with it during and long after the mystery manifested itself. How deep the documentary goes into finding the truth just draws you into the story more. There were so many times I had chills watching this documentary. Truly impressive story telling.
