Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple

This amazing documentary may not give you a total understanding of who Jim Jones was and why he caused more than 900 members of his Peoples Temple to commit suicide in Guyana in 1978. But through some incredible archival footage and interviews with the few survivors, you get a very clear, very frightening portrait of what life was like inside Jones' infamous cult. Seen through this film's sharp-focus lens of hindsight, it's relatively easy to understand why people would commit so completely to a cause (be it a religion, a relationship or a war) they know is lost. 86 minutes
