Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Raft

A documentary looking at a famous experiment conducted in the early 1970s, this feels a little too light and unfocused to truly draw viewers in. The experiment itself is interesting, and some of the events that flare up are enough to help the pacing, but too many moments aren't given the time and attention they deserve, even moments that occur between the subjects discussing their experiences in the present day.
