      Audience Member James s just as arrogant in the end as he was in the beginning. All the in between stuff makes no difference. In all of his talks, he speaks of how the horrible tragedy changed him and his life, never speaking about those who died and their families. Worse, when the poop hit the fan on the day of the incident, he bolted while his followers had to give statements to police and they grieved over their lost friends. He just left. This man who espoused "showing up" and "playing full on". Disgusting. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I wouldn't waste my time watching this if i were you, but if you must only watch the last 40 minutes. This guy is irresponsible and doesn't seem like he has even begun to grasp what he's done, the fact that people are still following him is insane. He should still be in jail. He is a narcissist and has shown no guilt, crocodile tears in every sense of the word. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Disgusting film which makes barely any mention of the many victims and seeks to re-glorify a money hungry sociopath. Shouldn't have been made. He should still be in jail. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Jenny Carchman does an excellent job capturing James Arthur Ray's true essence and how, on the day he killed 3 people, and injured countless more, can only relate to it by how it affected him, and how his life "collapsed in 15 minutes", never acknowledging his victims that lay dead in his wake, even after his release from prison. He showed his total lack of concern and indifference that day by leaving the death and suffering he caused and decided to instead take a shower, rather than do whatever possible to help these unfortunate people who trusted him, when police found him. He's a disgusting, selfish, phony who should have to apologize everyday to the families of the people he took, for the rest of his miserable life.

      Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com It's the very complexity of this situation that makes for fascinating TV, along with Carchman's respect for all the players and a refusal to turn Enlighten Us into an 'answer movie.' Rated: 3/4 Nov 29, 2016 Full Review Sarah Boslaugh Playback:stl ...an instructive film not only for the details of Ray's story but also for the techniques he employs in common with many others who have made their fortunes in the so-called self-help industry. Rated: 6/10 Nov 3, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
