Prophet's Prey

Prophet's Prey ★★★½

Someone recommended this documentary to me after I watched the Netflix documentary Sweet Pray and Obey, saying it provided additional background information. After seeing it, I'd argue that rather than elaborating, this documentary acts as a companion piece. While the Netflix version looks at the case from within, this one examines it from the perspective of those who want to depose this man from without. The hunt for Jeffs, for instance, is given more attention in the Netflix documentary series, while it is merely mentioned briefly here as an aside. The brief explanation of Mormon history, including Smith's untimely demise, was another highlight.

All in all, again, a really good companion documentary for anyone interested in the case.
