Sheer Garbage
12 November 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

This is one horrible documentary. It's so poorly directed. And Friedkin comes across as a bit of a loon.

The director interviews have no cohesiveness at all. They are just edited in with no rhyme or reason.

I guess Friedkin was thrilled to have someone to a profile on him. And I'm sure he's also now in horror at what was completed.

It's really horrible. The best thing I can say is that at 83 he's looking good and seem s to have his looney wits about him.
