one of these “panel of experts” docs with mostly critics and journalists interviewed, etc… it includes some people who were actually “there”, but almost no one who was close to the man. (though they did manage to get hugh hopper of soft machine, ’68-’72.)

worthwhile for photos and live/archival footage… unless, of course, you’ve seen it all before.  for me, it made a decent double feature with a technicolor dream.
