'Wild Wild Country' is slow, and while it's informative seeing different protagonists give their own sides of the story, sometimes you would like to also see how they would react under direct questioning. The relatively non-judgemental approach means that the truthfulness of the participants is never really tested. But nonetheless it's an amazing story. Perhaps what's most amazing of all is that the Baghwan's junk teachings somehow served as a real catalyst that changed how people felt about their lives, and brought them both a sense of meaning, and a willingness to kill.
Hugh Grant and Ben Wishaw are both quite brilliant in this telling of the story, as Thorpe and Scott respectively. Although the whole escapade is too farcical to be profoundly moving, you do feel sympathy towards two men increasingly locked together in an unsought destiny. Thankfully, society's treatment of alternate sexuality has improved over the last 40 years; the odd, competitve characters of those drawn into politics probably has not.
