    Filled with vivacity, charm and, yes, beauty.

    Was I watchin' the Disk 2 extra features? It's not even a movie. It's a goddamn interview, a goddamn 'feature disk' that doesn't have plot,Was I watchin' the Disk 2 extra features? It's not even a movie. It's a goddamn interview, a goddamn 'feature disk' that doesn't have plot, doesn't have even 2.1 channel, subtitles, and doesn't even have a proper intro.

    Boring, ephemeral, favor-of-the-month tripe. This is a contrived doc and most of it feels staged. Don't pay to see this when you can see Boring, ephemeral, favor-of-the-month tripe.
