I watched this today. Not a bad flick. Very very eerie. I wish there were more statistics relating to the bridge itself though.

It was OK. Watching the main guy scared to jump the entire film only to provide the "coolest" suicide in the film was the most eerie.

I think I'm going to hell for that last sentence, but oh well.

I felt that the people they chronicled were very uninteresting people in the first place which made it hard to care. That main guy was the worst I was cheering him on by the end.

Maybe it just had to do with the kinds of families that agreed to be interviewed for the film, but I found all the survivors very passive in a sort of, "Yeah, they kept talking about it, and one day they did it, and I guess that's what happens to people who feel that way....etc". I never got the impression that any of them (even the parents of the suicides) ever sat down with the people while they were still alive and had a blunt and clear talk about mistakes that can't be undone.

I can't say I've been in the exact personal situation, and I don't have all the answers, but it seems everyone in the documentary had a very hands-off approach to dealing with people in trouble.
