Does not tell the FULL story of Ron and Lauren Book
17 January 2019 | by iamthefallen1See all my reviews

I first must mention that I'm actually in this film, albeit briefly, protesting the Book Crime Family in this film. You'll see a similar critique on Amazon.

I was hoping the story of the Anti-Registry Movement would have been told in this film, but instead the film is about the Books. That means challenges to the Books in this film are sugar coated. Why? David Fiege told me face to face that our message was "too harsh." Really? In this film, Ron Book talks about wanting to waterboard us. Yet I was censored for discussing that Ron Book is a twice convicted felon? (Ron Book pled No Contest to Fraud in the 1980s and pleaded guilty to 4 counts of illegal campaign contributions in 1995, yet is still allowed to lobby the state.)

This film could've really cranked up the heat against the Books and their criminal activities, but instead, Feige softballed them. Book is never truly grilled by the filmmakers. Sure, there are arguments against the Book family's practices that forced Miami registrants to live homeless for years, but no one challenges the Books directly. This was the fault of Feige because he catered to the Books. Imagine the supposedly invincible Book family cowering in fear over a small protest of a "dozen people," or as Feige told me, "Skittish AF."

If you want to see the Book Crime Family in action, Google "Ron and Lauren Book: Unplugged and Unhinged." You will find a video of the REAL Books, not the whitewashed stuff you will see in this film. You dropped the ball, David. You punted on first down. This film had potential but at the end of the day, Feige had to cater to the Books rather than tell the full story, and in doing so, you have presented a mediocre project. It is a shame, really. There is a lot of lost potential to show the Book family are the true monsters of Miami. -- Derek
