I haven't seen it - yet.

But I have heard that there have many complaints about the lack of accuracy and misrepresentation of the film. This site is typical:

All of these counter points seem to be quite easy to check.

I notice that the film is tipped for an Oscar. Well, why not; that would make a neat book-end opposite that other pillar to present-day lunacy: An Inconvenient Truth. I see boxed sets on sale for Xmas!
