  1. Tyson polarized some critics. I missed it when it played for perhaps 3 weeks where I live. I guess I should check it out once it's released on DVD.

  2. I could see how Tyson would divide audiences. He does not show a lot of remorse regarding certain aspects of his life. Still I definitely think it is at least worth a rental.
