The Queen of Versailles is a documentary about an insanely wealthy couple building the largest home in America and what happens when their finances take a turn. It sounded fascinating and it kinda was. However, I feel uncomfortable watching documentaries where the people have no concept of how they come off. The couple in this film are oblivious monster types - and it's their unawareness that makes them monsters not that they are bad people per se). I felt much like when I watched Grey Gardens - more pitying than entertained. 4/10.
