Meticulously documented, filmed, and constructed. A 12-year project very much worth the risk and effort.

On October 27, 2020, Keith Raniere (the loquacious, nonsensical, self-indulgent, 5' 7" clown behind this funhouse) was sentenced to 120 years in prison. Here's hoping he rots in jail rather than slipping out the side-door through some Cosby-like loophole.
