    The point of the film is not to scorn or mock the Siegels, despite their excesses. They embody the quintessentially American urge to live beyond one's means. Their saga is simply the story of a nation's materialism writ large. show more

    Well Done, I realize when you start a doc you might know where the film should end but is the end? Would like to see chapter three or just the sequel with more to follow.
