I didn't find this all that interesting until revelations and turns in the story midway. It is rather sort of fascinating the film just started off sort of maybe having this figure in high regard, and then switching that around when we have to come to terms with the question of how likable or unlikable the primary figure is. Those are always the most interesting documentaries, and this seems to ask a lot of those questions in that regard.But the film still holds slow spots at times, and the ending leaves a lot to be desired. It's also rather uncomfortable to watch at times, since I felt like the primary figure did a lot of good but personality-wise also could be quite difficult to stand.
