I usually love Errol Morris documentaries, but this film is a total miss, in my opinion! I found it difficult to finish the film. The convoluted story, and disgusting manor of the film's subject is so repulsive on so many fronts - it's like watching a bum take a dump on a city street. And I resent the manipulations of views, as so often happens in documentaries - "they were saints caught up in an evil world!". No, this is the story of a self-possessed, self-important megalomaniac prostitute/bondage dom who fell hard for a Mormon missionary, and wouldn't let ANYONE deny HER passions, i.e. SHE does the denying (as a dominatrix). Her ego knows no bounds, and this film lets her further her lies and deceptions to the world. Errol's direction here is a mish-mash of tabloid filler and incoherent ramblings from a deluded whore. And not a fun whore who accepts her dirty deeds as part of an adult world of fun, but a whore that denies her whole life, and imagines everyone believes her lies and deceptions, and no one does. No matter what awards she may have garnered, I didn't find her more than passably attractive on a C grade. Sure, she snares several "slaves" to do as she instructs, but mostly this wandering film of a twisted-hearted egotist who refuses to be on the "slave" side of events and will go to any lengths to satisfy her boundless ego (I even doubt she cared that much for this hapless and naive Mormon missionary - it was all about her having control, even over a church and religion). Then there's the whole section about her dogs - WTF! Sappy, filler for a directionless mess of a film. The story is interesting - the subject, and this film are not!
