Jonestown always fascinated me.I really enjoyed the movie, as I am always amazed how individuals can have such powerful influence over groups. Jim Jones, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Lenin, Lennon, to name a few of such public figures.
I just happened to take a look at some of the Jonestown photos of “the dead” today. I well remember this “event.” It was a major news story and had an electrifying effect on the public at the time (1978).
Not equating the two pictures just yet, but of course this latest imagery from Syria comes to (my simple) mind.
