  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    An embarrassment of riches, completely fumbled.

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    Can't decide if I like this or not. The case is disturbing and 'about' several things -sociopathy, MSBP, performative illness, failure of legal and medical institutions- yet the doc itself is not very revealing because the subjects either treat the case as a tabloid (the nephew, the reporter) or do not seem mentally competent enough to understand or articulate their circumstances. It's mostly sad because of this.

  4. Laurs Kemp's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    Great subject matter, poorly executed. The story unfolded in the least climatic way possible - and this story was ALL climax!

  5. Lauren Burrell's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

  6. Dries's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    Con ogni probabilità questa è la storia REALE più agghiacciante mai sentita...peccato che il documentario non sia all'altezza dell'evento, dopo circa 10 minuti infatti veniamo a conoscenza di tutto e l'ora che ne consegue è praticamente riempitiva. Ma la storia, RIPETO, è TOTALMENTE ASSURDA E FUORI DI TESTA, mai mi sarei potuto immaginare che una cosa del genere potesse essere reale.

  7. Ricardo Pereira's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    This really is one of the most weird and creepiest story ever.

  8. BLP's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    One of the most fucked up and fascinating crime stories ever; in which the type of perversion involved is almost unimaginable. Unfortunately, you get the sense that the story could have been told better. There are way too many questions in the air, too many missing pieces, a lot of important questions brushed aside as mere details and big chunks of time that are glossed over and not properly documented.

  9. mpho3's rating of the film Mommy Dead and Dearest

    A fascinating story poorly told. Sword and Scale's 74- min. podcast does a much more thorough and objective job of relating the many layers and nuances of this "stranger than fiction" tale than Carr does in her 80-minute film. The scope of the crimes is diminished here, which is a shame because it could've been a much more astonishing and socially relevant documentary than this tabloid version. 2.5 stars
