With reference to why there aren't any clips, the effect of the documentary is cumulative. The decaying mansion, the bickering recluses, the photographs of their earlier socialite days, cat shit behind paintings and all night ice cream parties, all of these add up to a sum much more than the individual scenes.
The most interesting part is piecing together a narrative of just what happened in the 40s and 50s to damage these women so. You can't get that from 0:40 second clips.
Ok, i'm getting some of the context, anyone could do a brief summary of what made them go nuts?
Perhaps the Drew Barrymore telemovie of Grey Gardens would be more poeTV worthy? I haven't seen it yet but it must be awful.
It's pretty meh. Drew Barrymore is doing Patty and Selma rather than Little Edie.
There was a musical of this. An award-winning musical of this.

Honey, I don't like women in skirts, either.
This actually was recommended by my mother.
I have not been able to watch this movie yet (netflix queue), but GODDAMMIT mom was right.

My friends keep telling me to watch this, and I should listen to them.
These are my cousins. I find this documentary unwatchable.
