The use of condescending narration is a huge turn off. Did Daniel Snyder think he could talk down to his audience and expect them to stay tuned?
Although the documentary does contain interesting observations on how and why a film fails in a "blockbuster" nation it lacks any serious insights. You often feel as though it is excusing away the actions that led to the flop. For example "bad press" is used to excuse why Ishtar fumbled at the box office. They spend a lot of time telling how a movie really did make money after world wide distribution so it was a "perceived flop".
Next time drop the patronizing dialog and lay real blame where it belongs. At least pretend you respect your audience's intelligence.
