A Good Documentary to an Interesting Story
30 March 2017 | by jojiinchristSee all my reviews

The most common criticism made against this documentary is that this documentary glorifies Tim and Nick for their drug production and dealings. I don't think that is true at all considering Tim believed that LSD wasn't the be all and end all solution.

I think it tells a great tale, mostly from Nick and Tim's perspectives, but also from the law enforcement side too. Their personalities are so different and unique, it's really enjoyable to watch them go through the things they did.
