The Netflix equivalent of 'never meet your heroes'
25 May 2020 | by MGPT80See all my reviews

Sometimes its best to preserve the mystery. For anyone captivated by Richard Turner's art, this may sour it somewhat. Turner comes off as narcissistic and self-centred and the show features many uncomfortable interactions between him and his family. It seems like his wife and son (who both seem lovely) have sacrificed an awful lot for him yet don't really get much appreciation for it.

As for the documentary itself, there is far too much focus on Turner's blindness than his incredible abilities. This is especially annoying given that he describes people's obsessions with his sight as something he hates.

I came away from this feeling like I don't really like this guy very much. The muted reaction of his peers at the award ceremony suggests I might not be alone. An interesting documentary but probably would have been better left unmade.
