In her devastating 2006 documentary Deliver Us From Evil and last year’s controversial Hollywood expose An Open Secret, director Amy Berg brilliantly uncovered the face of sexual deviance in corridors of power. She does it again to deeply disturbing effect in PROPHET’S PREY, a gripping, authoritative account of the myriad abuses of Warren Jeffs, the currently incarcerated leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Berg’s interviews with past members of the polygamy-practicing Mormon denomination make for damning testimony, but the lasting power of PREY is its grim insight into the mentality of the deceived, and its despairing recognition that spiritual and psychological bondage doesn’t end simply by putting a monster behind bars.
