Mysteries abound in the life of John McAfee. He made millions creating antivirus software, then reinvented himself as a yogi, a proponent of herbal medicine, and a serial entrepreneur. He was known for his charm and generosity. Then his life took another turn. He moved from the US to Belize and built a heavily armed compound in the jungle, like a modern day Heart of Darkness. McAfee never shied away from media attention and boasted of his libertine lifestyle, maintaining a harem of young women. In 2012 his neighbour in Belize, an American named Gregory Faull, was found murdered by a gunshot. Sought for questioning by local authorities, McAfee fled to Guatemala, then returned to the US where he pursued the Libertarian Party nomination for President in 2016.

Total Biased Hit Job BS #FakeDocumentary
4 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was NOT a documentary. It was a biased HIT-JOB on John McCafee. I researched and got the real information on what he went through in Belize. What a waste of time watching this show. I couldn't even get through it. It is so obvious the so called Doctor developing the holistic medicine is full of "poo". "Oh I'm scared of guns..." Then why did you go to Belize? Investigate that! She didn't produce what she was hired to do so he fired her. What a "paid" by stupid director/ producer spiteful witch. Notice how she keeps looking down and not at the camera while interviewed?? Classic text book body language liar. What an armature Hit-Job #FakeDocumentary by ShowTime. Very disappointed as I was hoping for an unbiased true & factual insider based documentary.
