The explosively provocative film progressively and aggressively blurs distinctions between documentary and fiction.

A part-fact, part-fiction narrative that challenges the very notion of whether true documentary can even exist.

Seemingly banal in its conceit, wildly startling in its execution, it tracks a film crew that, like a detective squad, investigates what became of an ordinary man.
| Original Score: 4/5

Remains a primo example that cinema actually traffics in truthiness 24 frames per second.
