It seems I am batting .000 in the realm of documentaries recently. "Garbo: The Spy" told a really fascinating story really poorly. Edmon Roch sets out to tell the story of a particularly creative double-agent, working for the British and against the Nazis in WWII. However instead of setting the record straight, we are handed the (admittedly creatively brilliant) machinations of one code name Garbo as truth with bits and pieces slowly being revealed as a falsehood or an elaborate concoction of a scheme to bamboozle the Germans. Unfortunately it seems that the best way to comb through this all would have been more matter-of-factly. A phenomenal story poorly told, Garvo is extraordinarily fascinating in substance but horribly lacking in coherent presentation. There is enough made straight by the end such as to justify seeing the film, but not enough such as to preclude the necessity of serious reading after the film ended to try and understand what actually happened. Whether or not it was sensationalized a but is abyone's guess - the whole thing was beyond belief. However I also wonder how egregiously inept Nazi intelligence was, since this film made German intelligence out to be something of a Three Stooges act.
