What a terrific docuseries. The parallels between this and our current president are scary. Very well done and totally riveting even knowing the story and having watched other lesser known documentaries. Great job Leo and I will never joke about the Kool-aid again.
Movie time. Is Leo playing Jones? Gaga ur wife? Henchmen, Chris Merlonie & Jared Leno?
Great job, Leo! Very informative. Ive watched many documentaries on this and still learned a few new things. Very well done.
Indeed chilling but very well done with a lot of researched information.
Must see!!! One of the best documentaries I’ve watched. It is amazing that anyone survived this massacre. Having to watch the emotional testimonies puts you almost there.
