The Nine Lives of Marion Barry Reviews
What makes this story more tragic are the second (and third, and fourth) chances that Barry gets. As a viewer, you find yourself--against all logic--rooting for him to finally make the right choice, only to watch as he disappoints those closest to him again and again.
This is a flawlessly executed documentary, extremely involving and frustrating, the sort of story you hope--by the end--is fictional, and will disappear the moment you turn off your television. Oh, but it's true, sadly.
