No way in hell they would be listening to jazz
12 October 2020 | by donkey_dickSee all my reviews

Unrealistic to portray these folks in a religious cult listening to jazz music as they would've almost certainly would've thought it evil. They would've listened to hymns or marches in reality. It's lame how directors always assume EVERYONE in that time listened to jazz. It's like saying everyone liked Rap in the 80s or everyone liked Grunge in the 90s. Irresponsible storytelling.
