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.
