Twitter Capsule: Embodies difference between sympathy (rich) and sentiment (absent). Fewer blows than Truffaut's but they land harder.

VOR:   Crafty, confident blend of documentary and fictional techniques that almost never draws attention to its own construction. Nails a difficult and dispassionate tone and perspective.
