About the Movie
Groundbreaking documentarian Roberto Minervini paints an intimate portrait of the poverty, drug use, racial tension and pent-up aggression that plagues Louisiana's backwater communities. This astonishingly powerful film straddles the tenuous borderline between violence, vulnerability, depravity and tenderness.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Whatever genre it belongs to, "The Other Side" is powerful and disturbing.
Fresh: Miraculously [manages] to find a serene beauty amid so much desperation and squalor, honoring its characters without letting them off easy.
Rotten: It's ultimately hard to tell if the movie is trying to render its subjects with some humanity or otherwise if it's taking advantage of all these poor, beautiful losers.
Fresh: Look away at your own peril.
rare, but shut off after 20 min
Cant believe it, but i had to shut this off. Not sure why this is held in high regard.
Interesting, in the darkest way possible.
The discription for this documentary doesn't do it justice, for the lack of a better term. There is a lot to take in, the couple doing hard drugs and then having sex on screen, the stripper who looks like she hasn't hit her second trimester, yet and the girl giving oral to a guy after being auctioned on the 4th of July event and seeded in between all this is uneducated people who preach amendment rights, train militias and claim the UN is coming to take over. If this is an accurate sample of the people there, then no wonder Trump won.
