It was well done but almost too hard to watch. I frequently felt nauseated.

As a lot of history can be this story is heartbreaking but also as a lot of history, it needs to be told. I don’t think I’ll ever use the phrase “They’re drinking the Kool-Aid” again simply out of respect. This was masterfully told. I often heard of the Jonestown massacre growing up but for the first time it is an actual real story with real faces and names. Probably the best documentary I’ve ever seen and I’m thankful to the people who made it.

I couldn't stop watching. I thought I knew the story but I quickly realized that I had only absorbed the headlines. I watched agasp and got angry, cried, celebrated, wondered how this could happen. It celebrates the best and worse in us.
