Documentary? I'd say it's a travesty
29 May 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is a travesty of a documentary. Just a kitchy whirlpool of flashes and contrasting images to tune up a story. Not the story of a man, but the story the makers wanted to tell. To fill in for their ill making the team gives fast inserts from other interviews, pictures, they even go that far to get some extras to play their stitched jigsaw puzzle. Everything to make this documentary parody stay together. And that is the only quality I can find in this work: that through trickery the team finds a way to keep things from falling over. I know this is Discovery Channel standard of documentary, yet this fits better in the category of B movie based on a real story.
