A Peloton Of One is not an easy watch as the documentary is about a survivor of sexual abuse by a priest tries to inspire other survivors to come forward and tell their stories. The survivor is named Dave Ohlmuller who is very inspiring throughout the documentary, he rides his bike from Chicago to New York City it’s a journey he takes you on while sharing his story and the survivors he meets a long the way share there’s as well. The documentary also talks a bit about the American Justice system and how these cases either get ignored or can’t be put on trial, the journey Ohlmuller takes is a powerful one that really captures tons of emotions, hearing survivors share their stories is truly heartbreaking. There’s a lot of sense of healing in the documentary, you could look at Ohlmuller’s journey as sense of healing but also one that helps survivors and teaches the audience. As far as filmmaking there isn’t anything that crazy or something worth mentioning but there really doesn’t need to be. In fact that benefits the film when you think about it, it’s shot in this very raw style to it that moves the documentary along very well. Overall A Peloton Of One is a fantastic documentary that while it might be hard for some people to watch it is a very important documentary.
A Peloton Of One is currently in theaters. It will release on all VOD Platforms March 11th!
