So the guy is famous, yet unknown to the general public
So the guy is famous, yet unknown to the general public. That's a good base. And everything goes downhill from there. Because someone calls him "the godfather". Why make it racial? If it's racial it means that he killed as many people as Don Corleone? No. Just someone generating click bait.
Than the famous singers are cut short. The less famous singers have a hard time putting a sentence. That's okay, they are skilled at putting out musical notes, not words. But what's the point to have them there if they can't speak? A picture and a mention would suffice.
And that is the key of this documentary. Amateurs wanted to get to movers and shakers and used this documentary as the vehicle. And that's fine. A crap documentary as an excuse for doing some networking. But what's the thing with the politicians? One frame with a collage and itemized mentions would have sufficed.
