My love for this knows no bounds. It just brings me sheer joy.
I was prepared for this to be much more exploitive of the "freaks" than it was. I wish the unedited version was out there somewhere because I found this actually very compelling and wanted more of it. The only thing that irks me is apparently this was once considered horror and there is no horror about it. These are real people who were ostracized from society and found love and acceptance in their own world and I think the film shows that very well especially for the time.
