    I was so unimpressed with this film and these people. Most of them aren't too articulate or sophisticated. And they're in the art world, yet their dominant concern is protesting major money being donated to the art world. Oh noooo. What an outrage that is. These greedy, money-crazed Sacklers who donate millions to art galleries. Huh?

    Also, this documentary is confused about what it wants to be. I thought it would be all about Nan Goldin versus the Sacklers. But the film is barely informative about the Sacklers or Oxycontin. It just starts with presuming the audience already agrees the Sacklers are pure evil and goes from there. No one ever benefitted from Oxycontin, right? You get on it, inevitably abuse it and probably die. And it's all the Sacklers' fault. So simplistic. And the film can't decide whether it's about this specific issue or just Goldin's life story. About half the film is details about her own background, which frankly didn't interest me much. Another person whom I'm supposed to revere because they have a background of sex, drugs and squalor. Woo. Her photographs are mostly snapshots that just had the luck of capturing a resonant situation. There's also a substantial detour into AIDS discussion that further muddies the film's focus.

    Not impressed.
