Totally misses the point.
23 June 2020 | by brynn-settelsSee all my reviews

If you watch this documentary you'd think that Hollywood was created by Polish immigrants. It manages to basically ignore the fact that they were Jewish. It's like like making a documentary about blues and say it was created by Americans, without mentioning they were black. A Polish director, trying to give Poles credit for what was a Jewish creation, while the reason they left Poland was the terrible anti-sémitism. Not a word about why they left.
