worthwhile for those who are game
16 November 2004 | by sore_throatSee all my reviews

I've seen a lot of documentaries, and this film is up there in terms of unique, bizarre subject matter. I find it to be fascinating; I really can't think of another movie like it.

The low budget helps the overall feel because it adds to the realism. The attitude is neutral, neither viewing the subjects as freaks nor as victims, and is another asset. All sides get a voice, and the viewer gets a good perspective.

This film is both informative and moving. All in all, an excellent watch for those who aren't turned off by the topic.

Hopefully the director will make more stuff this distinct.
