Fascinating cultural document. Like a teen in the early 60s somehow got her “script” (dream diary) made by the guy who made 3:10 to Yuma etc.
Shoddy on every level, and insulting to the survivors of Jonestown. I assumed West would use the People's Temple as a jumping off point for something groundbreaking, but don't hold your breath. This is taken whole cloth from the source material, never diving beneath the surface - a lazy re-telling with no new insights. The most basic documentary on Jim Jones is infinitely more interesting, horrific and revealing than this.
