Excellent editing and production value.
5 April 2019 | by terstar-32619See all my reviews

As an editor, I really appreciated the storytelling in this documentary. As soon as I met these characters, and the believability of their wild tale, I was hooked. Once his narrative is set, it's up to the editor to keep the story moving with clever transitions and here, Theo was brilliant, not just as the editor, but as the producer/director. He provided himself with plenty of coverage in the way of cinematic material, graphics, and a not-what-I-expected selection of music to keep you on the edge and propel the movie. This is an enjoyable doc that doesn't take itself too seriously. The filmmakers had a lot of fun with it and so did I.
