Poor journalism, at best
11 August 2018 | by hollycbarkerSee all my reviews

This documentary told a sensationalized version of the truth and was intellectually dishonest. It's a fraction of the story without so much as an acknowledgement of the gap. I suspect a lot of effort was put forth to assemble this film, so it's a pity they missed the mark by this far.
