Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Watching this documentary actually gave me a headache.Pure torture Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This has to be the oddest film I've seen - and I've seen quite a few - still haven't made sense of it. Worth a watch, or fast-forward through - just for the mind boggle. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
