    It was good but a bit biased, which could be understood, considering the director. As an example, we hear about the conspiracy theory that The Man blew up the levees with dynamite but there's no mention of the infamous "chocolate city" speech, other than a reference to it on a shirt.

    It also went on a bit longer than it needed to, had a lot of contradictions, and some people crying over first world problems, especially with regards to the trailers they got, that slowed it down for me.

    There were quite a few large topics and issues that didn't make the cut and we instead had a lot more repetition that could have been avoided. It's over 4 hours long, so it's not like there was a lack of time.
