One of the best documentaries I've seen and I mean that in the way it was made. It was a Braveheart of documentaries. Director, actors, costume designers and the rest of the crew did a great job to make it look authentic. There are really just two things that I didn't like. The first one is that it was to short, it should have been made into a series so we could learn more about the man and his life. The second one is that they "praise" him to much for my taste, after all he was a psychopathic megalomaniac who destroyed everything and everyone in his way. It's certainly worth a look, even more so if you don't know a lot about this part of the human history.
