The way a documentary should be made
30 March 2010 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This documentary had an exceptional quality; it did not allow the film maker's perspective on this contentious issue to dominate or even raise its head until the very end (and I won't spoil that for you). For the first half of the movie, every time one of the advocates for one side or the other of this issue (abstinence only, sex education) was presenting their case I would think she was on "their side". Then I realized that she was simply allowing all of these people to present their best case and she honored the nature of debate, which SHOULD be present in all documentaries about controversial topics. Until I saw this film, I didn't realize how incredibly rare it is in contemporary documentary films. I certainly haven't seen them all, but I have seen over 300 feature length docs in the past two years. I can not recall another one that came across as this balanced, a stunning achievement. I'm not sure if this was where director Cassie Jaye intended to focus her career energy, but she does have an exciting future as a documentary film maker.
