    A worthy topic that deserves a slightly better documentary.

    Unlike Waltz with Bashir, it only seems to be using animation in an effort to make blog diaries by twentysomethings appear cinematic.

    An arresting visual style cannot make up for lack of new information or viewpoints about the Green Revolution in 2009 Iran.

    Only the animation seems forced, with its comic-book style and melodramatic tone registering as manipulative next to the brute reality of the documentary images.
