Who else saw this documentary/movie/whatever?

Picked it up a couple nights ago and think for the most part, it was factual and enjoyable. Particularily, the insight it gave on the personalities, and corporate culture within the organization. Actually it was quite fascinating to see just how far people could go with all the hype and the fabricated nature of the enterprise.

As is often the case though, I was annoyed by the use of stock footage to dramaticize any of the points they were making (ie. gambling with peoples futures - shots of people pushing poker chips across a table.. totally irrelevant!). Why do documentary-style films always have to use such arbitrary cliches to illustrate their points!?!

Any thoughts?
