At this length by the end I felt bad for feeling annoyed at a sort of wondrous story about a young woman so naive and accepting she accidentally stumbled into making ground breaking erotic imagery. It’s totally worth it to read up on her or wait for my review of the biopic about her. Knowing what I know now I’d give this doc a pass, though.
