A great documentary
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was a great documentary. At times it felt like a mystery, at other times like a drama, and this along with a few more recent documentaries have shredded the stereotype of a documentary as something your dad forced you to watch when you were a good. The subject was a hidden secret, and everything from the atmosphere of a small town, to the reveal was thrilling. We often ask why we are obsessed with secrets, are we who we really think we are? Are our parents and friends the vision we have had of them for years? This is a teaser to a question that our mind will try to touch and at times we will receive answers that surprise us.

I hope this producer will bring us more works like this.
