Not very good choices; some good interviews...
23 February 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

The choices weren't extraordinarily good but I enjoyed watching the interviews in yet another flawed AFI program. Honestly, I don't know anyone who actually agrees with these shows--it's more or less just a matter of ocassionally agreeing with a choice or two.
