Well made but a slight niggle...
7 February 2020 | by gianniskipreosSee all my reviews

Good documentary. Very in depth. However, and I do apologise, but the soundtrack is shocking. Bad choice of songs. The backing track sometimes overpowers the interviews. If someone is giving an interview then it's very strange to have a music piece playing with vocals underneath them. Quite a few of the montages in this documentary , which are mainly of Ralph's artwork , are paired with very bad music. This ruins the tone of the documentary - of course this is just my opinion. The main thing I will take away from this doc is that it had a bad choice of music, and music placement - other than that it's brilliant and a must buy.
