Another film that was on John Waters' Top Ten (in 2017) that I watched within the last 24 hours. I get what he sees in both but I found this one worthier of praise and definitely the one that needs saving. It's fallen through the cracks but is currently on Hulu.
A true crime movie entirely through the young victim's perspective in feeling confused, manipulative, jealousy, shame, Stockholm syndrome, and questioning his dreams versus reality versus sanity. Not many films are this bold to go into this direction with all of its implications
The ending is definitely going to anger people but it's probably one of the most realized handling of a tricky subject matter in a genre that's kind of gets too derivative for its own good.
MVPs are Radcliff and Wolkstein's editing and Freedson-Jackson's performance.
