There are some definite highlights. And it really does a good job of explaining how lucky we were to get the film we did. But parts of it were a bit much for me... the "cultural impact" stuff, people doing Cosplay, etc. It's fine people want to celebrate the film in whatever way, but I don't really relate to that circus level of fandom... it's all a bit attention seeking and playing it up for the camera. I'd prefer a stricter focus on the film and the people involved in making it. I don't get the sense they were having excruciating meetings in the editing room deciding what amazing material they were going to have to cut to come in under 2 hours. It felt padded. But you hang in there for the good bits.

It is a little odd that a spoof on fandom gets a Cosplay level fan following. I thought I was it's biggest fan ;) and the most obnoxious thing I do is quote it too much.

How did you find the doc.?
