Freaks is on TCM tonight. Should I watch it?

I have never seen this because I don't know if I would like it. It has been called one of the most unusual movies ever made. This showing will be uncut.

1. I still have not seen it!

But everything I've ever read about it suggests quite a disturbing story. So it depends on your current mood and your approach to movies in general.

When one of the few surviving actors from The Wizard of Oz was interviewed a while back, he mentioned that one of the Oz cast members, Harry Doll (also known as Harry Earles), was in Freaks.

I think I'll watch it.

2. Yes.

I felt the same way until I watched it a few years ago. Very hard to find-I waited months for the vhs.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be recording it tonight.


*Edited to add that the "Freaks" in this movie aren't who you'd expect.

**A must see for anyone who has ever been the target of bullies.
