I made it through to the end, but there were plenty of moments where I couldn't believe what I was seeing. So much weirdness.

I have a hazy recollection of his story, but it is that he is batshit crazy, hiding out in Ecuador or something. Very very weird considering I used to use his anti Virus suite...

I wonder if that's because its a lazy way to create new product, or whether the conventional documentary genre doesn't have the same degree of audience appeal?

For instance, I know a few people who just don't enjoy documentaries as a general rule. Including my husband.

those are definitely a couple of solid reasons why its happening - i recently watched welcome to marwen and it got me thinking about this - in my opinion it didnt come anywhere close to touching the emotional poignancy of marwencol but i can understand wanting to attempt something that would reach a broader audience
