I'm sure many of the commenters on this site are asking the same questions, but for the most part, this is a very enlightening and enjoyable documentary. The filmmaker, JT LeRoy, spent the better part of his life at the University of Colorado in Boulder. As he explained, his experience there was a result of his involvement in an experiment he did with two friends, where they were sent into the Himalayas to find a cure for cancer. The premise was that they would have the experience of actually living through the "after-effects" of such a trip, which could include extreme physical pain and nausea, and even hallucinations. But the group was never actually treated in that way, as the results of the experiment were never published. Instead, they were filmed by JT and his team, and used as an inspiration for the documentary. The most obvious benefit of this film is the chance to see the students in their raw, natural state of being. The students are truly incredible, with the best of intentions, but who are still bound by the discipline and discipline of their mentors. While some of the students appear to have come from the lower middle-class, the majority are from the upper-middle-class. The documentary does a very good job of capturing the raw, energetic energy of the students, and how they manage to stay focused on the work, despite the pressure of their mentors. In addition, the documentary provides an excellent look at how many of the students' mentors had a strong influence on their lives. The young men and women who played a role in their lives would be hard-pressed to be described as "superstars" by the mainstream media. There is a sense of the real-life importance of the experiment, and how the students did what they could to help make it a success. In some ways, the documentary feels more like a diary than a documentary. The students often seem to be reflecting on their experiences, and some of the footage is very powerful. This is also the case for the interviews with the professors who were involved in the experiment, and some of them seem to be very passionate about the topic. Overall, I thought the film was very well done, and very informative. While it is not a documentary for everyone, it will be interesting for those who are interested in the topic.
