Bare on the facts

"The narrator mentions his parents, his wife, and the age of his death. Still, this work is threadbare on the facts. For example, they note that he wrote "Sharazad" (sp?) and they play a 3-minute clip of it, but that's all.
Too many docs on entertainers become boring slide lectures. The creators here try to have movement. For example, they show photos of Rimsky's relatives but they move the camera from the wall where they hang to a busy outside scene. Old operas are shown with singing and moving performers.
This may keep your interests, but you won't learn much. That's for sure."
