How is this rated 7.8? This should be 10.0!
29 March 2019 | by thekrzysikfamilySee all my reviews

Louis Theroux again proves how he is the best interviewer in the world in this day. His ability to probe with different interview techniques, question styles and his general choice of words shows a level of empathy yet at the same time fights an argument for the opposite side - he is simply a perfectionist. The episode 'Choosing Death' should of received awards for the emotional connection it gives viewers as we follow the difficult decision for 3 different families, i'm a 29 year old bloke and I was gushing with tears throughout. It broke me. That is what makes a great documentary!
