Quote
The latest must-binge original offering from Netflix comes in the shape of a six-part documentary series about a small religious movement (or cult, if you prefer) that moved into a small Oregon town in the 1980s. Easily one of the craziest documentaries I’ve ever seen, Chapman and Maclain Way’s six-part series “Wild Wild Country” boasts a profound narrative with intricate human beings, an amass of intellectual themes and more twists than you can count. Told chronologically and using 250+ hours of footage and extensive new interviews, it places you into the contrasting experiences of people in this bizarre saga, leaving you to wonder in part how such a story could have been so forgotten by American history.

I was hooked half way through the first episode.

the subject itself is fascinating.  unfortunately this is a case of filmmakers getting in the way of their material.  it's like they cherry-picked every single fashionable facet of "cutting edge" documentaries, implemented all of those things without much thought, and ramped it up to 11.
