Heard this was a great doc on the SCJ. Still as feisty as ever at 85!

94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

does no one watch political docu's anymore? i thought the John McCain one that was on HBO the other night (released in May, i think) was fantastic...

I saw this at my Drafthouse a few months ago. It was really good.

Not to detract from RBG, but that McCain documentary dealt with virtually nothing about McCain's actual voting history, his affairs, his Veterans Affairs scandal, and is denial of POWs even when given hard evidence from his fellow POWs. It was more of a quick-jab for political purposes, but certainly not meant to give an overall perception of McCain that many Veterans know exists and has given them troubles for decades, all the while McCain proclaimed he was their advocate. The doc also didn't discuss the many trips to foreign countries, such as Syria, and why McCain was dealing with Taliban and Al Qaeda leaders in that region.

Saw the RBG documentary recently, even though I had 0 familiarity with RBG & little interest in politics. However, it was very well done & compelling.
