A documentary and a position piece, editorial or essay are very different. And at best this might be one of those latter 3 but doesn't approach being a documentary. Documentaries are supposed to be like news (not todays news but the hypothetical version taught in journalism schools) neutral in tone, with no intended outcome or reaction from its audience and uncolored presentation of verified facts and evidence. It may have a message or idea to offer but it cant be jammed down the viewers throat but realized or refuted by themselves. I didn't go to J school but I think even position pieces and essays are supposed to have supporting evidence or something showing some reason for their opinion, by that standard Im not even sure this qualifies as that. A more apt title mighta been The Koch Brothers slandered or libeled, I always forget which is written and which spoken, and drenched in innuendo, whatever the reality or anyones opinions of these men this film offers no credible evidence or even semi plausible conjecture on the subject.
