Loz Loory's rating of the film Agave: Spirit of a Nation

2.5 Something went awry in pre- and post-production. The actual cinematography is gorgeous, and there are great interview clips. The problem is the structure: it needs to be refined and focused. Right now, we leap around the country and lack voiceover/screen titles to explain what we're seeing. At the end we get narration that might be better at the beginning. Another edit for clarity would help tremendously.
