    June 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Me and the Cult Leader may be a bit too long, but it is brutally sincere, interesting, dramatic, shocking, and sheds much light to a case, an organization and two radically opposite men, while providing food for much thought. An excellent documentary.

    July 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Me and the Cult Leader proves to be a study not just in the possibilities of interpersonal understanding over mass tragedies, but also its limits.
