This Is Not Really A Documentary. It's More Of A Series Of Video Blogs.
9 July 2019 | by J_Batek_IISee all my reviews

This documentary plays like a high school sociology project, made with an iPhone. I question what the subject was supposed to be - in other words, there seems to be little consistency throughout this series of video testimonials. I love documentaries - this is not a documentary. Skip this one.
