I would love to see it again.
20 January 2011 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

I have seen this documentary, and I would love to see it again. With Napoleon talking about his life with numerous interviews of others it was something novel and unique. I was left mesmerized listening and watching the 'life of an Outlaw'.

To live with copious friends talking about becoming 'like' those famous celebrities and then see with my own eyes the reality of it all was something very valuable.

I saw this documentary in Sydney Australia World Premiere Screening. Simply put, it is a documentary worth watching, and I hope to watch it again.
