I was hanging on every twist and turn, gobsmacked at the next bit of craziness that was revealed.

Wild Wild Country is an excellent documentary series that warns us about the power of charismatic men and the horror that comes when one believes blindly in the messiahs. [Full review in Spanish]

Even if you think you know this story, this doc has more dirt than you could have imagined... A true only-in-America story. God help us all.
May 30, 2018
Compelling if occasionally slow viewing.
May 9, 2018
Propelled by ample vintage video footage from local and national news covering the situation at the time, the documentary also benefits from contemporary interviews.
May 3, 2018
Although it might seem counterintuitive, part of what makes the series compelling (and seriously bingeable) is its relatability.

It's an often bizarre story that is, like any good yarn, full of twists and unforgettable characters.

Sheela [is] a flinty ball-buster who is the incongruous star of one of the best documentaries I've seen in a while.

Isn't it just like a cult leader to let a powerful woman do all the work and then take the fall?

Were they all that different from the first pilgrims who came to America? Watch and go figure.

The tale of the Rajneesh commune in Oregon is a tale of regular people (and some extraordinary ones) in all of their beautiful, violent, loving, greedy, generous, selfish, ecstatic, manipulative, messy glory. And that's what makes it so good.

Hey, it is still an exhaustive and utterly absorbing piece of work by brothers Maclain and Chapman Way.

Forget all the click-baity reviews dubbing Wild Wild Country a "sex cult doc" - the truth is far more complicated and fascinating than a group of horny hippies living on a commune.
April 10, 2018
What's exceptional about Wild Wild Country is its episodic treatment manages to make the cult attractive: a sense of purpose, self-realisation, free love.
April 5, 2018
Wild Wild Country is hella addictive.

Wild Wild Country is a veritable treasure trove of fascination.
March 27, 2018
Superb doc explores religious freedom, cults, xenophobia.

Wild Wild Country understands that behind every tabloid-friendly utopia-gone-awry headline is a group of people, however misguided, who earnestly thought they'd found utopia.
March 26, 2018
As with all excellent documentaries, it's really about so much more than appearances suggest.
