1st watched 5/16/2002 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Budd Boelticher): Lifeless documentary on the great times of a bullfigher named Carlos Arruza(a legend in Mexico) who was killed in 1966 in a car wreck. I suppose if you like bullfighting you'll appreciate this, but there is very little dialogue and explanation as to why this man was so great at what he does and not even much about the real man Arruza or his family. I guess we're just supposed to accept it that he's one of the best and watch him work and watch his admirers and family enjoy his presence. I'm sorry but there is much missing here to make a good documentary in my opinion.
