not impressed

I understand this movie was trying to get the message out about the dangers of vinyl but they need to be more prepared and get all of their facts straight. They kept referring to studies done 30 years ago but not much recently. Also, when Judith interviewed the representative from the Vinyl Institute she was completely out of her league and unprepared. The representative was very convincing and was not the least bit shaken by any of her questions. The representative handled her "tough" questions very easily. I was not impressed with this movie.
