Working with what they had access to, I don't know how they could have done
much better.  Only things I didn't like were on a technical level - the
"soft" imaging they used on many scenes to get a film-like look frequently
just looked out of focus (like the establishing beach shots at the
beginning), or like they'd rubbed Vasoline on the lens and fogged the image
(note all that light diffusion around some of the interview subjects).
