Like close-up magic, this doc proves that—much as we love him—the 'boy next door' might very well live a sadistic, sociopathic double-life right before our very eyes, and we'd be none the wiser.
In hindsight, the 'clues' Jimmy Savile provided were far more than clues; they were outright kicks to the teeth, but very nearly everyone simply chalked them up to fame-related oddities and eccentricities.
Watching 50, 40, 30, and 20-year-old footage through today's social lens is quite disturbing.
Savile joked and smirked and winked about improper relationships, and everyone around him either laughed outright (chalking it up to 'locker room talk') or enabled him.
How far we've come since then, am I right?
