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.

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

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

What seems like a straightforward story of culture clash spins into something more disturbing, engrossing and gross than you could possibly imagine.

It takes the time to dwell in every conceivable emotion, and your opinions of certain individuals may shift repeatedly throughout the six episodes.

To describe Wild Wild Country as jaw-dropping is to understate the number of times my mouth gaped while watching the series.

Like most good documentarians, the Ways conduct interviews with key figures in this drama without fully passing judgment on any of them and leaving it up to viewers to draw their own conclusions.

What this is about, at bottom, is the delights of storytelling - the story that the Ways are expertly telling and the sometimes contradictory, sometimes reinforcing stories that their subjects have to tell.

What's most striking about "Wild Wild Country" is how present, and unyielding, the passions of the combatants remain.

Wild Wild Country ends up being a character study, an attempt to suss out whether Bhagwan and Sheela really bought what they were selling...stylistic quibbles are minor given the sheer scope of the series.

By handling this story so intelligently and by opening its heart to a very complicated idea of good and evil, "Wild Wild Country" has a profound, mesmerizing power itself.
January 25, 2018
It's a slice of partially forgotten history in which real life just keeps getting more and more outlandish and implausible.
