I won't say that this is an excellent movie...there are things that would have certainly made it better. I thought that some of the actual movie footage was distracting. There was so much footage of the documentary (and the documentary of the documentary) that I found the cuts back to actual movie distracting at times (yes, this was really a movie about a documentary and a documentary about that documentary).
That having been said, I thought there was a lot to like about the movie as well. The acting was very very good (Paul Rudd was especially good). It was also (I thought) a rather novel approach to the subject matter. Definitely worth watching.
