1.0 out of 5 stars Debunked., 19 Aug. 2012
This review is from: The Mismeasure of Man (Paperback)
University of Pennsylvania remeasured Morton's Skulls and found no fault with Morton's original conclusion, but find every detail of Gould's analysis wrong.

"The Mismeasure of Man" is a classic example of fact-twisting for political purposes.

KEEP POLITICS OUT OF SCIENCE!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lake Mungo, 11 Aug. 2010
I read the plot outline and decided to give this one a try. I have to say, I was impressed. Granted, many examples of documentary style horror films exist already, but Lake Mungo proves that the sub-genre has not gone stale. In this superb Aussie horror, it is very easy to forget the fictitious nature of the plot thanks to interesting and well acted characters that carry a degree of ambiguity that you would expect from a real documentary. The plot is engaging with many questions to discuss with friends. Banal "jumpscares" of mainstream horror titles are scarce, the film relying instead of the horror of grisly autopsy images, haunting home video footage and the disturbing actions of a family in mourning. The final scene is a dread and terrifying finale. Forget "Paranormal Activty" and pick up Lake Mungo instead.
