A solid & entertaining documentary
29 January 2003 | by (Planet TRONA) – See all my reviews

Quite simply, I felt that this was a solid & entertaining documentary & a worthy time capsule of a compelling historical moment. I gave this as a present to a friend of mine that is an almost rabid political animal & he loved it.

It is also deeply personal, and offers insight into the life of a Hollywood star that has since been a tabloid fixture. Downey Jr. is quite candid in fact about the history of his drug abuse.

I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you have the opportunity, check this one out.
