Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction
9 March 2015 | by plazalizSee all my reviews

and Sons of Perdition is documented proof. This piece of work is excellent, one of the best documentaries I've seen. The 85 minutes I spent watching felt more like fifteen. Almost from the beginning I became unaware of the cameras. Speaking strictly as a non- professional film critic, only someone who enjoys watching documentaries and movies of multiple genres, this film should have won numerous awards. It was riveting, eye-opening, gratitude inducing, educating, heart wrenching and easily held my attention to the end. It's so difficult to grasp the kind of mental bondage that would hold anyone captive to such a bizarre lifestyle, particularly the women who are treated as commodities, used and abused for the men's pleasure. The Jason Bailey review in the critics section did a great job summing it up.
