The previous reviewer completely misunderstood the film
28 March 2017 | by christina-55403See all my reviews

This film beautifully and excruciatingly shows the tortured thinking of gays and lesbians trapped inside the now de-bunked 'reparative therapy' movement.

The film was designed to make viewers feel disturbed, revolted, outraged - so in that sense the previous reviewer had it right.

The filmmakers managed to get unprecedented access to a notoriously paranoid community, and shed much needed light on the damage that was being done within it.

Instead of using a heavy and condemning hand - adding to damage already done - by betraying its subjects, the film used restraint and simply turned the camera on the lunacy - letting the painful contortions of its participants speak for themselves.

Very well done.
