Documentary that's so revealing it's infuriating
22 September 2019 | by rebmarlizSee all my reviews

I was scrolling through my Facebook yesterday when I saw a preview for Dark Waters. I'm looked up who it was based on because I was intrigued . Needless to say 1 NY Times article and this documentary. Has me repeating it to anyone who will listen. The sheer negligence of blatant disregard for human life on the companies involved is disgusting to say the least. My daughter who is 10 was watching this and her face when she realized what we were watching affected her as well was heart breaking. Great documentary. Good enough you had a 10 year old with attention issues to sit and watch.
