I agree with Ron Olesko and Tannywheeler. A one hour film can not be comprehensive. The filmmaker selected the right material and presented it in the right way to give an understanding of Lomax's goals, methods, and results and, equally important, the joy of his work. I understand and appreciate Lomax's work a lot more for having seen the film, and that's a testament to the quality of the film.
