Superb
2 July 2007 | by davidebertsSee all my reviews

An absolutely riveting documentary about two of the strangest people I've met on film. Such an interesting look into the obsessive side of relationships. I saw it at Sundance and was floored. Complex characters brought to life through masterful use of archival footage. It speaks volumes about the lengths people will go to 'have someone'. Clearly made with subtlety and skill by a talented group of filmmakers. Proves once again that real life is so much more interesting than the vast majority of fiction we see on the big screen. Hopefully the version for television isn't a shorter version as you need time to understand the complexities. Don't miss this film...
