I don't know, I wondered how on earth they could make a documentary about such a fascinating personality so deeply boring and, worse than that, irritating. The editing was so frantic and intrusive that it distracted me from coming to grips with the character. Just as we were getting to something interesting, the moment was snatched away and we were off at a tangent.
Also the time-line was chaotic and confusing: I believe that this is already a complex story that needs to be told in proper sequence for thorough understanding - and its telling requires no special effects, animations or dressing up - I kept silently screaming "Give it to me straight guys - I can take it!" Instead you are constantly aware of the director's need for attention.
Whatever you may say about Conrad Black, he doesn't lack depth - and lack of depth was the biggest problem with this documentary.
