This Documentary Had Nothing Of Any Use About Marilyn Manson

"This documentary had nothing new or interesting of use even to a newfound Manson fan. Really these guys who made the music doc should have gotten more interested in their subject or not even made it. To say this film is unauthorized or even thorough is letting it off the hook.
The sound and video was alright on the DVD even though the editing could've been better. The interludes to the different sections of the movie were okay at least. Video was a 4:3 ratio on the DVD and it wasn't region-coded. It was mixed okay in stereo sound so all of those parts are worth mentioning. However, interviews were directed poorly and without leading as much enthusiasm or controversy as there should have been. The soundtrack music by W!ck was awful and over the top. The producers never even glossed over the local scene that influenced the beginning of Marilyn Manson in Florida.
Interviews were directed poorly and without leading as much enthusiasm or controversy as there should have been. No one had anything new to say or exciting to say about the band. It was closer to an infomercial than a documentary. Much better interviews could have been used. Especially one's that were commonly on networks that were at least somewhat interesting and enlightenning. Why didn't they use interview footage from "Bowling for Columbine" when they used a still from it? The editor could have cut all the garbage with the fanboy. He was annoying and didn't say anything that was worth hearing about Marilyn Manson.
It's a shame the discography and videography sections of the DVD are so good. Couldn't the filmmakers have been as interested in what was behind the music of Marilyn Manson?
A really great documentary on Marilyn Manson is "Demystifying the Devil". The researcher should've taken sources from that movie."
This dvd is the same as "Sympathy for the Devil"

"The same company selling this dvd, has just re-released it with a newer picture on the cover as "sympathy for the devil" in an attempt to sell the same thing again to fans. its a weak documentary in the first place, and the fact that the company is trying to rip-off fans by re-naming this is further proof of their intentions.
neither dvd is worth it, and Amazon should note on each page these 2 dvds are exactly the same or they will be dealing with alot of returns."
