A Good Documentary Until Lou Himself Jumps The Shark
The other comments here mention the documentary's crucial historical omissions and gloss-overs, but it is worth adding that the final third is also something of a chore to watch. It is not the treatment of events, but the subject himself and principally his growing artistic pretensions which makes for sometimes risible viewing (the footage of the 'Timerocker' show looks very, very silly indeed). Before he gets too 'art and lit' however, this DVD presents a fine collection of Lou footage and amusing interviews well worth an eight out of ten rating. A pity he's such a tedious old master now, but at least he's still here to tell the tale.
