I've seen better from high school children.

Don't waste your time watching this "documentary" unless you want to see how to turn 2 minutes of archival footage into 23 minutes of badly shot, poorly edited, and HORRIBLE sound quality production – although the interviews were vaguely interesting even if they barely address the topic. How many different effects can you put one piece of footage through, and how many times can you show the same clip? Find out as you watch the same archival clip played over and over and over again with effects that will cause seizures. Be prepared to ride the volume control because apparently the filmmakers haven't learned how to adjust the audio track yet. The production company is called Grainy Pictures which is appropriate as most of the shots looked like watching television through a snow globe. Finally, the reenactments from the film Casino were insipid and look like a high school project. Honestly, I wonder if they were actually granted the rights to include the footage from the movie and television interview of the book's author or if they're violating the copyrights.
