Prophet's Prey

Release Date: September 18, 2015
Review Date: January 27, 2015
Reviewer: Blake Leath
Genre(s): Documentary/Docudrama, Independent & Artsy

Movies 7 of 12, "Prophet's Prey," about FLDS and sociopath/megalomaniac/"prophet" Warren Jeffs was well done, but a doc about blasphemy, heresy, programmatic/institutionalized/generational brainstorming and systematic incest and polygamy and the molestation of hundreds of children 12 and under with parental consent is hard to endure, no matter how carefully it's done. Tough subject matter. Compelling, and infuriating. Jon Krakauer is its only comic relief; thankful he appeared.
