At first glance, #Netflix’s #WildWildCountry looks like a story of power and money, but, observed more closely, it is so much more. The docuseries reveals the ugly truth of the extent to which people can go to break free from the mundanity of everyday life to seek peace, adventure and happiness; however bizarre or strange the source. It brings to the fore the most basic human need to belong, to be unconditionally accepted and to be loved.
The Way brothers manage to capture the strange rise and fall of the controversial cult guru’s commune in Oregon in an absolutely riveting way.
P.S. Now if you have been living under a rock (like me) and missed this totally binge-worthy Netflix six-part docuseries, go watch it right away!
