"A Decade Under the Influence" IFC/DVD question

I just noted in Premier Magazine that IFC is showing this movie in mid August - as a three part series. Since my computer is having problems navigating around IFC's website, I was curious if anyone know's what the docu's running time is? It looks like an expanded three hour version of the film, since the theatrical cut as denoted by IMDB was 108 minutes. For those who don't get IFC, the DVD is scheduled for a Sept. 30 release.

They are scheduled in three separate one-hour segments, but I don't know total actual running times.

Part One 8/20,8pm,11pm,2am
Part Two 8/21,8pm,11pm,2am
Part Three 8/22,8pm,11pm,2am

From Docurama's website:

"Released theatrically earlier this year, A DECADE UNDER THE INFLUENCE will air as part of a three-part television series event on IFC on August 20, 21, and 22 with each broadcast followed by a film from the era. We will release the full 3-hour version on DVD September 30th. The DVD will include a number of interviews not included in the broadcast or theatrical versions, including commentary by Roy Scheider, Peter Bogdanovich, and Sidney Lumet."

Man, I was HUGELY dissappointed with this one. Totally overhyped and overrated film, sadly falling in line with much of the late Mr. Demme's work. Just a completely pedestrian, and uninsightful documentary, and it seemed as if they highlighted "Easy Riders and Raging Bulls" and went out and interviewed accordingly, frequently picking up duplicate stories. I expected something much more of this, they had access to some great people and some great footage, and I was so ready to love it and if just fell flat.

Anyone else catch it? I just saw the DVD.
