If you don't know the man, you should, and this is a lively, informative introduction.

The anecdotes from Cohen's early years in TV... are like a blueprint for how a clever artist can get a lot from a little.

There's nothing particularly inspired about Mitchell's treatment here - he's directed a lot of DVD extras, and this first feature feels like a plus-sized version of one - but there's considerable entertainment value in its subject.

Mitchell is respectful of Cohen, but both men see the humor in what they're talking about, which makes for a portrait that is intensely funny and fun, as well as enlightening.
