Pretty poorly made doc which serves as a massively abridged version of a great book. The idea of Duff reading passages from the book live with a band is an interesting idea but it's a bit awkward and doesn't quite work. There's also some awful animated segments, but the interviews are fine. The backing band (I think Loaded) does some cool versions of GN'R songs though. Duff is a really interesting guy. Read the book.
