    ★★★★

    I think Janis the caretaker was the real human chimp as this doc focused on her experience over a lifetime helping captive chimps rejoin nature. Told with interviews, voice-over, and lots of archive footage from her years with Lucy.

    Really exceeded my expectations on this one, glad I found it.

    It's like quicksand, when I was a…
