Ripley's movie review

Holmes's life story was interesting but perhaps even more interesting were the people in his life. Their interviews were compelling and baffling, often at the same time. And really people, it wasn't necessary to throw in so many hardcore sex scenes. Photos of Holmes in all his glory were horrifying enough.

Newt's movie review

So the stories I'd heard didn't exaggerate. Wow. But I really didn't need to see quite so many hardcore clips. Really. One was plenty. The interviews were interesting and the story was definitely well-researched and I thought it was told well. Ciccolina scared me though.
