Zac Weber's rating of the film Grey Gardens

Transfixing and entertaining in a bizarre way. The mother and daughter pair in Grey Gardens have a fluid understanding of past and present, and their inability to escape each other was especially fascinating. There were times I felt the film was exploitative in a "look how weird they are" type of way; however, our understanding of mental illness was less sophisticated in the 1970s.
