Commercial hell

The doc in itself is really interesting. But I gave up after 13 mins, where there had been 3 long commercials. And the commercials are trying to be tied into the narrative in really clunky ways (Spielberg slept poorly during the shoot of Jaws. But if he had slept with this great mattress, then he would have had a great sleep)
It’s like they’re trying to trick the audience in not realizing that it’s a commercial, until they’re halfway through it. Too bad..
