This is a great idea for either a movie (comedy) or a documentary but to me the problem is that the filmmaker/star/subject just can not seem to decide which one of those genres of movies he actually wants to make.
The way the camera is set up, the way he "catches himself" at the beginning of scenes, the way his (and he apparently has only one) camera is set up inside a room before others/he enter, and then perform in front of the camera pretending it is not there... these things all tell me that this is a movie, which maybe doesn't have a script but at the very least has an idea where this is going and what they need to do in each scene.
On the other hand it's clearly not just a scripted movie or at the very least is trying so hard to present itself as a straight up documentary, so it's not as funny or enjoyable as it could have been in that regard either.
Great effort and an amazing premise but they just didn't pull it off which is a shame. If they tried it again as a real documentary or as the premise of a movie I would watch that in a heartbeat!
