Schpadoinkle. This is a great documentary. It's raw and real. It shows the traumatic process of the making of a Troma movie in all its natural glory. I have seen some horrid documentaries,and trust me when I say you will be amazed at how much this one isn't horrid. It's great. I hope to see more documentaries like this soon. I was really happy to get some insight to some of the Troma faces. Such as Joe Fleishaker. I was impressed with his story of his once athletic bodies inability to stop eating like a professional athlete. That man is great. I wish him all the best, as I do also the filmmakers responsible for this great documentary. Thanks.
