Editorial Reviews

Review

It's the ultra-explicit reality show you ll never see on TV - a shockumentary that forever shatters the boundaries of what a theatrical feature can, should, and will depict. --Entertainment Weekly

One of the most compelling pieces of non-fiction ever produced. --Film Threat

"One of the most powerful docs I've ever seen." --Yahoo! Movies

Product Description

Raw Deal is one of the most exposing and controversial documentaries about rape and fraternity life today. Billy Corben s remarkable exposé on the contested rape of 27-year-old Lisa Gier King in Gainesville, Florida, is sure to provoke heated discussions everywhere about rape, women s rights, and male privilege. On Friday, February 26, 1999, Delta Chi frat brothers at the University of Florida held a party at their fraternity house and hired exotic dancer Lisa Gier King to perform. The following morning, a half-naked and distraught King ran from the house, claiming that Michael Yarhaus had raped her. Her most startling allegation was that frat brother Tony Marzullo had videotaped the crime. Two days later, King herself was arrested for filing a false police report after authorities claimed the rape showed clearly willing and consensual sex. The community was stunned by King s arrest after it was discovered that the videotape showed Marzullo himself repeatedly addressing the camera to gleefully describe that what he was witnessing was a rape. Under pressure from the media and Campus NOW to charge the frat brothers with rape, State Attorney Rod Smith arrogantly responded by making the tape available to the public so people could make up their own minds. Filmmaker Billy Corben takes Smith s challenge and presents the scandalizing, sexually explicit footage alongside interviews of participants involved with the case to conduct an investigation the police never did. The result is a shocking insight on fraternity life and the politically constructed nature of the truth.

Format: DVD
This is a carefully constructed account of a contested event which some people see as rape and some people do not. What is interesting is that there are two videos showing the event and yet still, opposed interpretations are possible. It shows how foolish is the idea that if we could only see something then we would know what really happened. We would, but our ideas of what really happened would not be the same as anyone else's. By the way, I think it was rape.

Format: DVD
I bought this movie because I am a big fan of Billy Corben & Co's documentaries. I believe all documentaries should be produced and directed how they do it. You never get bored watching one of their films. The documentary shows both sides of the story equally. The individuals involved are interviewed and share their stories and the actual video depicting the alleged rape is shown as well. You are left to decide for yourself who is guilty, if anyone. Beyond that, it brings to light the difficulty of defining the word rape and shows that even if there is real evidence (like a video) it doesn't always mean that it is an open and shut case because perception of the victims actions differs from person to person.

Billy Corbin always puts out a great product , and he did not disappoint. I remember hearing about this story, so it's good that he got it out there.
