    Which is better? The book 'The Battle of Brazil' or the Criterion documentary 'The Battle of Brazil: A Video History'?

    Although both are great, I prefer the book by a very slight margin.

    BTW, if you've only read the book or seen the documentary, then it's okay. That will be the one you prefer for now.

    I don't know if I can compare the two, but I do love both. The only thing I didn't like about the doc was that it never mentions what a bitch Kim Greist apparently was to work with.

    I’ve not read the book. Love the Criterion documentary.

    I guess that the book will go on my reading list. Which is long enough already.
