Must-see documentary film.
17 December 2018 | by smokeysmokeysmokeySee all my reviews

Very well made film. The whole thing was informative and well directed. I was particularly impressed with the editing. Certain sequences, especially one near the middle of the film are Oscar worthy. Content of the film is invaluable and well communicated. This is a BBC Storyville documentary film and is of higher quality than what you typically see on Netflix, from younger inexperienced filmmakers. BBC Storyville released another good documentary last year that is also worth checking you: The Work (2017). Different writers/directors, yet still good.

The pacing in this is better than your average Netflix documentary, too, thanks not just to better editing, directing and writing, but the presentation being in documentary film format, and not the stretched-out documentary series format we see so much of now where documentaries which should be 2 hours are stretched out over 6 to 10 and filled out with repetition (an awful trend to increase viewing time for their shareholders, at the expense of quality and people's time). Wild Wild Country being a prime example of such abuse of the viewer's time, which should have been 2 or 3 episodes, not 6. Or preferably documentary film format, like this hidden gem-where filmmakers are forced to cut the unnecessary. If you can find it, watch it. A theatrical release would have been handy. No sign of it on DVD or streaming at this point-Dec 2018. Update: YouTube :-)
