  • Cantor seems to have noticed how dull the actual footage is, since he relies heavily on "arty" shots and black-and-white inserts. show more

  • Much of the resulting material is very funny, though there are a few times when the filmmakers patronize or mock their subjects in a way that makes you uncomfortable. show more

  • All of the interviewees are compelling, whether proudly showing off bruises and bullet holes from on-the-job scuffles, or voicing their opinions about how the profession has changed. show more
