It's a fascinating case study of government overreach far grosser than the comics it claimed it was protecting people from, and one that should be more widely known.
Though its production is humble and its account full of images many won't want to see, the case represents crucial knowledge for Americans concerned with the boundaries of the First Amendment.
Boiled Angels has a notably grungy, bargain-basement look, with cheap-looking effects work and inconsistent storytelling techniques.
Boiled Angels is a must watch for American citizens who take their free speech for granted, and for artists who may not know that their wildest, most abhorrent creations could feasibly put them on the wrong side of the law.
The question is not do we like the art, but whether or not that art should be censored and its creator fined and imprisoned for producing it. Can we excuse an attack on First Amendment rights because the art is personally repellant to us?
And while few would find pleasure in seeing Diana's art...Henenlotter brings to light what was a miscarriage of justice against Diana.
This film... is an important piece of work.
Tells the frustrating, baffling, incredible-but-true story with an attitude of good-humored punk energy.
A documentary that will offend and enlighten you simultaneously.
