Describe an allusion that you noticed in the documentary and explain its relationship to the story as a whole.

  2. Did the documentary resort to the use of gratuitous violence, explicit portrayals of sexual encounters, or excessive profanity? If it did, how did these scenes affect the story told by the movie?
