TSP2017: Letters From Generation RX

Letters From Generation RX. Kevin P. Miller. 2017.

OH FUCK! It’s an American documentary, So it’s an incessant barrage of pedestrian imagery, where they try to keep the interest of bored viewers by putting in as many edits in per second as possible replete with “action reenactments”.
