As much as we all are enjoying this doc (and it is truly amazing), I think this point should be well taken. Most people watching likely won't research to understand the extent to which it's been editorialized, they are going to "just enjoy it" as this article says. And yet, this is a growing trend of public figures actively producing popular documentaries about them (Taylor Swift, Hillary Clinton, Travis Scott to name a few). Imagine how different docs like "Diego Maradona" or "OJ: Made in America" would be with the living subjects' involvement, possibly glancing over or reframing the most uncomfortable parts of their lives. The trend just feels less like documentary and more like effective branding/PR.
