What distinguishes Jon Reiss's lively, sure-handed film from the rest is that it widens the spectrum by taking a comprehensively international viewpoint.

The subject is never less than fascinating, though the film's repetitive format and reiteration of the same points ad infinitum will wear you down before the paint can dry.
