Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator

Documentary


 

A look behind the man who created Bikram yoga and his fall from grace after accusations of sexual harassment and rape.

"Bikram: Yogi, Guru, Predator" is a stunning documentary. There's a lot of terrain covered in the relatively short run time of this film, but every minute is filled with meaning. Plenty of archival footage is used to paint a picture of our noticeably absent villain, and to demonstrate arguments as they're aired. There's no question as to which side of the story this production is pushing, and it will leave you wondering if the central man is a genius, pathological liar, or both. Downward dog.
