... and to be quite frank, not sure if I do after watching this documentary. More contributing to cast a spell of mysticism on Mr. Derek J., this might be quite a bummer for everyone who hasn't heard of him either ...
Having said that, Tilda S. does a great job as narrator, there are quite a few interesting bits on this man (who was anything but "normal", but you can decide for yourself, if that is for better or worse). And while some might judge him for his likings (or dis likings), that wouldn't be fair in my eyes. While this man was quite controversial, the best thing to do before watching this movie, is to get to know the guy, just to have some basic knowledge on him. Again having said that, this also means, that this movie wasn't really aimed at people who never heard of him (like myself) ... Your choice!
