Movie Reviews

Watch Out Osbornes!
R. Diaz | Orlando, FL United States | 04/22/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary is based on a royal who bought an island in the carribean and eventually becomes an outcast for being VERY DIFFICULT to the board members that now run the very profitable island. All I can say is that you can't take your eyes and ears off of it. It's like watching a man desend into a bit of madness. A bit tragic, but very entertaining. His almost constant outbursts at the director and close friends during this film is like walking into a family get together that goes "oh so wrong!" I highly recommend this film. He's like Madonna in Truth or Dare, except this guy is truely at the end of his rope. Highly recommended!"
Well worth a rental!

"this british produced gem about a rogue aristocrat tells a fascinating story behind the world's wealthiest gated community. i produce documentaries, and this is a beautifully edited and filmed journey into the mind of a cranky and brilliant guy. it's a shame it isn't better known."
