    This is an amazing documentary. At the same time, I do not wish to add this to my "favorites" as that seems to imply that I have a desire to watch it again at some point in the future.

    It is so emotionally draining to watch this film.

    Am I glad I saw it?
    Yes.


    Do I ever want to see this again?
    No.
