Irony: this 'documentary' treats viewers like idiots
6 February 2006 | by marblexyzSee all my reviews

This movie is stuffed with quick edits full of useless archival footage.

Are any of the clips in the movie longer than 10 seconds?

The filmmakers clearly think we need constant visual stimulation to keep us engaged.

This movie is 95% style, 5% content. It does more to glamorize idiocy than repudiate it.

Please, we can pay attention without thousands of edits.

The actual content delivered by this movie are surrounded by footage that is related to the movie, but does not contribute actual content.
