Great story, but the animation might trigger epileptic seizures
4 September 2018 | by Shaun V.See all my reviews

Amazing story. This documentary is well researched. But my god, that animation is so damn frustrating. The shifting lines all the time are just too much. If you know that the documentary is 90% filled with animation. It just gets to much after a while. Nearly gave me an epileptic seizure. Shame.
