This is an old production, so it has some contemporary cultural and political references, which in no-way is detrimental to the film. Finally, it is a very-long documentary, it is easy to lose perspective of the time-sequence of events. It is a good idea to see it many times, it gets better every time.
Quality Warning: I recommend to put the DVD's in jewel boxes, as insertion in their case ends up damaging the DVD's center hole. I found this to be true for the old (double sided DVD`s ) and the new type case ( Single sided DVD's; I bought a replacement set). Furthermore, the new sets may not play in some DVD players. Example, mine does not play in the PC, but it does in the DVD player. I suspect quality issues. But the set is now very cheap, and the material very good.
