ARM official review of the "Untouchable" documentary at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival

Listen to the full commentary and synopsis of the film here:

Tom Madison of Oregon Action Committee and Derek Logue from Once Fallen took a bite out of the Big Apple and watched the much-hyped film "Untouchable," playing at the Tribeca Film Festival.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Tom gave it a 6, I gave it a 4.9. I found the film to be lacking in criticism of the Book family an catered to the Books. Tom found it somewhat valuable because Ron Book makes an ass of himself.

David Feige himself stated his intent wasn't to "talk solutions," and he felt the message of ARM was "too harsh." in the end, the film fails to deliver some hard-hitting truths. On the upside, a number of researchers were in the film (Jill Levenson, Eric S. Janus, and others), and last year's Rally in Tally does make an appearance, albeit in an incomplete form that stressed the Book family rather than our message of reform.

Quite frankly, it wasn't worth the $25 I spent to see this film.
