Good story somewhat unbelievable and slow .

Compelling and heart breaking.

The gift they both gave each other is breathtaking.

As a Twin Myself: This is a fascinating story of the bond between two twin brothers.

Honest and compelling .

It's not an easy film to watch, but it is very compelling and leaves you asking yourself what you would do and who is in the right.

And then the slow and boring storytelling.

Built and repetitive .

Slow documentary which is hard to believe .

This is actually the most interesting and engaging documentary I have ever seen.

I was getting fidgeting waiting for the real story.

This was a well made and gripping documentary about a brother who loved his twin so much, that he decided to give him the happiness that he did not have.

If I have to see another camera shot of rain pelting against a window pane for cinematic effect I'll die of boredom.

You have to see this, you have to, the pain is almost too much, yet the love of family and two brothers is awe inspiring.

Harrowing, thought-provoking and absorbing in equal measures, the camerawork and edits only added to the raw emotional generated by these brother's tragic story.

An intersting and disturbing story of a terrible childhood, and a fascinating story of the bond between two twin brothers!

It is also over stretched, to cover the 1 h 25 min getting repetitive and, even worst, it doesn't thoroughly investigates the events.

Too slow .

But absolutely fascinating to sit through.

I quite enjoyed the storytelling from Alex and Marcus, it was compelling and concise.

I found the story a little drawn out as they kind of went in circles saying the same things.. I trusted him, I lied to him, I made up this life.

Harrowing and fascinating in equal measure...

The bravery of the one brother carrying the horrible truth is stunning and his bravery and strength touched me deeply.

Horrifying story and at the same time amazing photography is powerful and the stages the film takes you and the exciting end

My only criticism is that it feels a bit repetitive towards the middle portion and the pace slackened while they could have explored the history a bit more.

The movie was so slow that I barley maded it out of it.. Otherwise the narrative was good..a lot of scenes were repeated..the movie should be half it's screen time to be enjoyable and watchable to the end for a lot of people or just plat it at x2 speed.

A shocking and absorbing story which will leave you angry, sad and shocked that such things can happen behind closed doors in middle class Britain.

This was so slow and boring and felt too contrived.

Gripping, eye opening and truly deverstating .

There's a lot of things that seem highly unlikely in their story but it wouldn't be the first time we've had a fabricated story presented as fact by a film maker who either doesn't bother to check the validity of their claims, or purposely ignores them in the interests of making a compelling movie?

The love, respect, and determination to protect his brother, is truly awe inspiring.

A well-made documentary that is unique, gripping (as another reviewer stated) & worth watching.

This combination of absolute trust and absolute willingness to construct a fantasy to the death is what makes the relationship between Alex and Marcus so riveting in how unusual they really are.

The slowest movie I've ever seen.

So very very slow....

Gripping .

Horrifying, gripping & beautiful.

Slow and boring .

This traumatic journey was told in a way that i've never witnessed before; fastpaced shots, intense music, fancy graphics are not relevant here, nor needed.

Interesting story but they dragged it on for too long.
