    "Now I have just seen it again and am stunned that I praised it. It is one of the most historically important documentaries ever made, yes, but one of the best? It is a terrible film, paralyzingly dull, simpleminded, overlong and not even 'manipulative,' because it is too clumsy to manipulate anyone but a true believer. It is not a 'great movie' in the sense that the other films in this group are great, but it is 'great' in the reputation it has and the shadow it casts."

    Wow, I'm stunned at how honest Roger Ebert was about reviewing this famous of a film. Personally I thought the film was decent and had some great visuals but was ultimately fairly uninteresting.
