The documentary is particularly clever in its use of interviews with recovering alcoholics. The interviews help you get a better understanding of not only Wilson, but the struggles of alcoholics in general. The film also does a good job in addressing the issues faced by any growing organization. Documentary buffs and fans of character driven stories should seriously consider giving this film a look.

It includes a great deal of Wilson\'s letters, film clips and audio recordings which allow the viewer to make their own interpretation of the man and his achievements. When the subject of a documentary is a man who has made such personal sacrifices and noble contributions, it is difficult to ignore his iconic image, but the film shows a man who admittedly never escaped all his demons and was haunted by doubts and depression all his life.To some this will diminish his status, to others it will enhance his legacy.
