Watch It, and Ask for a Follow-up
30 June 2018 | by vkfqlurjqztbolkSee all my reviews

There is nothing flashy about this documentary, and refreshingly so. Rather, it's about people: young, old, learned, not-so-learned and others. As disparate a group as this may appear to be, it really is made up of like-minded individualists.

Some know why they are there, and others really do not. But they all seem to be there for basically the same reason: freedom, whatever that means to them.

Overall, I found it a good investment of my time, and a story worth telling.

P.S. I would love to have the filmmakers do a follow-up. This, to me, would be of immense educational and human value.
