Watch Louis Theroux: A Place for Paedophiles - Alternative Versions.
This film is in many ways typical for Louis Theroux. In it he goes into
a community or a group of people who are outside of normal life in some
way and he interviews them in a manner of being naive and innocent
about them; these groups have been racists, religious fanatics, maximum
security prisoners, drug addicts and so on. Here though I did feel like
he was being brave with his choice of subject. OK not brave in terms of
personal safety (as he often is) but more in terms of tackling a
subject that is incredibly emotive and one in which even those who view
themselves as liberal struggle not to want them harshly punished for
their crimes. Paedophiles are generally portrayed in the media as
unforgivable monsters who never deserve a second chance and this is
perhaps understandable because generally what they have done is
unfathomable and near impossible to emotionally get past.
It could in theory have been a witch hunt of revulsion, but it could
also have been a film where the paedophiles get treated with a soft
touch and gets accused of being too easy on them considering what they
have done. What the film actually manages to do is to walk a perfect
line of being horrified by what these people did but also being able to
look at them as people not monsters that we should all burn out of
their homes in a frenzy of mob hysteria. Louis himself is key to this
working because he himself appears to be struggling with disconnecting
the what from the who. This again is understandable and there are
subjects here who, as he concludes, will simply never get out of this
treatment facility alive. Although he doesn't really get "answers" to
the challenges, he does do a great job of showing all sides of the
problems the suspicions, the inability to find a "cure", the
inability of society to accept paedophiles realised from jail into
their community with the comparative ease of accepting (say) a robber
who did his time etc. All of these are well covered by the choice of
subject interviewed and it did feel aspects of the problem were raised
by the different people Louis interviewed.
The strongest point for me was masterfully made at the end. Mr Lamb is
up for release having voluntarily been chemically then physically
castrated and spending 11 years in treatment; Louis has not really
spoken about what he did all those years ago and raises this with Lamb.
When he is asked why it matters, Louis can't really say much more than
"owning up" or "coming clean" something I agreed with myself, because
it doesn't feel "right" that it goes unspoken. However as Lamb says,
when can he move on too, when can he be allowed to start fresh having
done so much to get to that point. It is a great moment because it
perfectly captures the conflict that is about to happen with the
community and Lamb Louis is saying what many of us feel and, while we
agree with his feelings, the film also forces us to listen to what this
other person in the room is saying, because they sound right too. It is
a great moment at the end of the film.
This is a very difficult film to watch and indeed there are people in
here that are hard to look at because of the crimes described that they
did. However it is worth watching because it asks many, many more
questions than it even tries to answer and it manages to be honest
about the paedophiles while also refusing to paint them as monsters
it keeps them as deeply damaged people, many of whom will die in a
treatment facility that might as well be a prison. As uncomfortable and
difficult as the subject deserves, but it is still an excellent look at
the subject by Theroux.
