Review of Louis Theroux: Life on the Edge (2020)
Louis Theroux (cast).
Seen in 2022.
A career retrospective where Theroux—in the COVID-19 pandemic and caring for his children at home—comments on his thinking behind some of his most famous work and follows up with people he interviewed years earlier.
Theroux is characteristically simple and honest in his motivations. Instead of intellectualizing, he freely admits that he gradually went for darkness and conflict.
