The ethical questions and condescending treatment of the subject seemed so
palpable in this film, I at first thought this a pseudo-documentary along
the lines of _Bob Roberts_ or _David Holzman's Diary_ (1968) as I figured
no one would so purposefully continue the exploitation of an already
exploited subject.
 
It would be fascinating to teach this film as an example sexism in
documentaries.
