also provide fine insight. The footage of the manuscript auction is a delight.
Producer Brian Huberman does a good job tracking down and interviewing all the
surviving principals involved in the diary controversy
However, there are many major flaws in the video's presentation and produc-
tion values. On-camera interviews are poorly lit and often backlit. Modern day-
footage shot in Mexico is cut into the historical narrative, but the footage makes
no sense whatsoever in the historical context. Much of the footage was shot
hand-held and is rough and shaky. Some of the editing is rough and there are
portions of the story that jump around, are disjointed and make no sense in
their content or placement. Often there is no set-up or lead-in and the viewer
gets a jarring or abrupt feeling in the program's transitions. So with all that said,
why should one watch this video? Because it's a fascinating story and one that
viewers will definitely enjoy.
