The Queen of Versailles Reviews

  • Mar 28, 2020

    Fantastic documentary that makes you wonder why on Earth the couple at the center of the film agreed to put their wasteful, self-centered, and disturbingly consumer-centric lives on full display. A fascinating look at the disturbingly vapid lives and how neglected children can be when parents are obsessed with material things. Sadly, one of the daughters died of an overdose 3 years after this film - she wasn’t getting much substance from either money obsessed parent. Surprisingly engaging documentary.

    A complete reality check and honest depiction of the devastating conditions of the 2008 economic crash. Living within this absurd family's walls for a doc feature is already relentless entertainment regardless of their financial circumstances, but the obvious dilemma at hand here throws it into some really fascinating areas. This is a great doc.

    The Queen of Versailles is truly mind blowing in that it reveals the complete otherworldism that makes up the minds of the 1%.

    Interesting documentary. Watch the rise and fall of a time share tycoon. Tragedy is not the rise and fall. It's how the old man aka tycoon treats his young children. Movies could also be titled why an old man should not have young kids.

    Fascinating documentary looking into the life of a billionaire family who was completely devastated by the crash of the economy. I would definitely watch it again.

    You do feel sympathy for the people going through a family crisis, but only as much sympathy as one can muster for spoiled rich people.

    Pretty Tragic & Does What You Might Expect, Reveals How Disconnected These Types Of Families Really Can Be. The Hedonistic Nature Of 'The Queen' (Jackie Siegel) Is Quite Disappointing To Watch Even In The Face Of Her Husband's Retreat To His Room & Clearly Developing Depression. She Remains Idealistic & Completely Naive Pretending To Ignore The Obvious While His Son Doggedly Sticks By His Side. The Postscript Suggests Some Things Have Come Good As Of 2015-2016 But Still With A Great Deal Of Debt Owed To Those Whom Stuck With The Business..(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Queen_of_Versailles) ..Not Surprised Also A Lawsuit Precluded The Original Release In The Way The Family Was 'Depicted', Which Was Subsequently Thrown Out.

    Heard it showed how trashy the family was - I personally didn't see that. Thought they were eccentric but ok. Bit disappointed they didnt show the finished house (if it ever was finished...)
