A waste of time
So some guy finds out a legend on the Internet. And he wants to see if it is true. That is the basis of this documentary. The guy is a smart guy. So somebody else has already done all the research. This one is only about exploiting the situation and selling the movie. The research is pretty much we have a photo and we assume we have to dig in this area. Everything else is about bringing the boring cast of talking heads who can barf a lot of meaningless words. Like talking about how a crap game "killed the video game industry". Even if the video game industry was well and making billions at the time the film is made. So one to three minutes of information for over an hour. What a rip off!
