At the height of his stardom, the world's biggest pop star, Michael Jackson, began long-running relationships with two boys, aged seven and ten, and their families. They now allege that he sexually abused them.
In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they're triplets who were separated at birth. But their quest to find out why turns into a bizarre and sinister mystery.
The film's producer met with Elizabeth Holmes early in development, before criminal charges were filed, to determine whether she could be interviewed for the film. Ultimately the director decided he wanted to portray how Holmes carefully crafted Theranos and her own image to be seen by the public, up until the story unraveled. Accordingly, aside from brief footage from her deposition, all footage of Holmes seen in the film is from archival material from before she was charged, most of it her own commissioned promotional video for Theranos. Alex Gibney remarked "She made the documentary she wanted me to invest in and I used it to a different purpose." See more »
The story is very intriguing and points all fingers at Elizabeth Holmes and Sunny Balwani. However, it points at Elizabeth for engineering errors., which should have been a glimpse into who was running the engineering of the device (not only Elizabeth Holmes) and how did the Chief Medical Officer interpret and publish data. Who reviewed and submitted the 510k to the FDA? This documentary looks at the obvious and does not delve very deep. There were not only two people who defrauded investors, but a entire group. The media either doesn't understand how these things happen or does not seem to want to delve deeper. Either way this just skims the story.
