Ineptly made doc about an important group... by johnjflynn006 September 29, 2005 - 11:34 AM PDT

This has got to be one of the most poorly made docs ever: no sense of composition in the interviews, no use of the zillions of photos that the Firesign guys are passing around, incredibly bad camera and lighting. One interview is out of focus about 50% of the time. The Firesign Theater deserves much better than this: what an irony that these masters of media are the victims of this hack and slash job. Yikes! Some good stories, but only for the DIE HARD fans...the audio portion of the DVD is OK, but the originals are better (given that we can't see the stage show). Don't waste your time!
