Compelling story
11 May 2019 | by BiggusDSee all my reviews

I agree with one reviewer here that Bill is probably not a very reliable narrator, but I would argue that Patty Hearst's version of the story is not any more believable than his. The documentary lets you draw your own conclusion, and mine is that A) her fiancé's assertion that she was a-political before the kidnapping is something that is directly disproven by her father pronouncing that she was always a rebel (i.e. not a meek, subservient housewife); B) Bill seems very direct and honest except when he thinks he might incriminate himself - so he is underplaying the stress they put on her when she was a captive; and C) Patty clearly is "water" - a social chameleon, and that to such a degree that the recordings of her after the trial are downright creepy. Tania was a real thing.
