One Sided Story
27 October 2018 | by prathyushamadanSee all my reviews

I din't know who this man was though I came across some of his books which were quit interesting. When I watched this documentry, I was stunned and disgusted to see so many sheep following someone who wanted to make hell loads of money. Later one of my friends asked me to watch Wild Wild Country and after watching it, I felt I was wrong. People had their own believes. This documentry is so one sided and show the whole picture in a bad light. I can't believe the director cut the story into pieces and patched it up where ever he wanted changing the whole damn point of view.
