Pervert Park

Directed by Frida Barkfors and Lasse Barkfors

Florida Justice Transitions is home to 120 convicted sex offenders. Like in many other U.S. states, sex offenders are not allowed to live within 1000 feet of places frequented by children. Because of this, many sex offenders live under bridges or in woods – or in the trailer park Florida Justice Transitions – known as Pervert Park. The crimes committed by the residents range from simple misdemeanors to horrendous acts unbearable to contemplate.

    My favorite part was when the documentary about perverts, rapists, and child molesters broke out into song.

  • ★★★★ review by Nathan Rabin on Letterboxd

    Fascinating. Unbelievably grim and depressing but fascinating.

  • ★★★½ review by Cameron Croston on Letterboxd

    Tonally uneven but emotionally crushing.

  • ★★★★ review by Stew Mitchell on Letterboxd

    Harrowing. It doesn’t offer any answers, and I still don’t have any idea how the world should respond to the issue, but it reminds us of something that might be even more important: we’re all humans. 

    Good or bad, right or wrong, life doesn’t end after a person commits a horrible crime, even if we wish it would. There may not be a correct answer, but we need to look beyond the thin sliver of information that we have to see the big picture. This documentary, while certainly biased, helps to get a better sense of what that means.

  • ★★★★ review by Bethany on Letterboxd

    A really tragic and compelling documentary overall, certainly a hell of an argument for trauma begetting cycles of trauma. I had a few issues with some of the specific statements about one particular subject that probably has some to do with my own profession, but most of the subjects I found very good.
