“The pic's great achievement is being able to shine light on this ultra-dark
corner of the medical avant-garde, and draw out undoubtedly reluctant subjects

"Melody Gilbert tackles considerably tough subject matter here, and

“Whole does a wonderful job at revealing a topic as bizarre as BIID warmly.”

you find it to understand their desire, you will come away from the film
with sympathy for their strange predicament.”
