This feature documentary is a portrait of Peter Watkins, an Oscar®-winning British filmmaker who, for the past 4 decades, has proved that films can be made without compromise. With the proliferation of TV channels, documentaries are enjoying an unprecedented boom fuelled by audiences seeking an alternative to infotainment. But now documentary filmmaking, too, finds itself constrained by the imperatives of television. However, there is a rebel resisting this uniformity of the spirit. Pre-eminent among today's documentary filmmakers concerned about this mind-numbing standardization, Peter Watkins has never strayed from either his principles or the cause.

    This is the most boring thing I have watched online in ages. It is NOT a portrait of Watkins, but more a making-of report about "La Commune", Watkins' film from 2000. There are lengthy, bland talking heads interviews with actors of the film and what they think about their role, politics and life in general. Watkins is seen in about 15 minutes of the film. There is not a word about his other important works. If you have the time, go and watch "The War Game", "Punishment Park" or - if you know the classics - "The Media Project." I think the labelling above is very misleading...
