  • The Source does hold enough anthropological value to please some audiences. Despite lacking the recognition factor and lurid tragedy of a phenomenon like Jonestown, the story should attract viewers on the small screen. show more

  • Anyone interested in the appeal of cults and the psychological lure of a charismatic leader will appreciate The Source Family. show more

  • More than just a footnote to a wayward period of cultural history, The Source Family portrays an American type, the transcendent charlatan, a latter-day Gatsby, not of material riches but of the soul. show more
