The documentary includes many factual errors, jumps to conclusions about things like motive and thought processes that the evidence simply doesn't support and massively overstates the role of Stalin in the revolution, as well as his friendship with Lenin. It also completely ignores that Stalin had previously been dismissed by Lenin from the party due to his criminal tactics.
