A rush job?

As a lifelong friend I was disappointed by the shabby research and in-accuracies. The narration was also mediocre. Some one needs to do a better job of chronicling his life.

I'm a pro chef who came up from the dish-pit, chef Tony is a hero, and I couldn't get five minutes into this, it has zero punk rock.
