Fascinating, Funny, and Oddly Touching
22 August 2017 | by Doc_BlueSee all my reviews

I'm really disappointed to see that this film has basically no ratings. It's a must-see for any skater, Jackass fan, or someone simply interested in countercultures. On top of being hilarious and very entertaining, it works as an insightful exploration of how a small magazine essentially introduced a brand of humor to the eventual mainstream and secretly influenced a countless number of things. The people behind it, the controversies, how it evolved; its all very interesting. Especially considering that this was the 90's for god's sake. I'm really glad that a film was made about Big Brother, for it is definitely a worthy subject for a quality documentary. Now it just needs to be seen. Watch this fiiiiiilm!
