Framing John DeLorean:

Who was the real John DeLorean? To some, he was a renegade visionary who revolutionized the automobile industry. To others, he was the ultimate con man.

Decent documentary. I could have done without the re-enactments, overall, which are interspersed with the actual footage, although you get an insight of what actors strive for (Alec Baldwin plays John D) in studying a character. I kind of wish they told what happened in the life of his son and daughter. The daughter seems to be doing well, while the son seems to be scraping by (as noted by a tour of his apt during filming of the doc).

IMO, it was a genius concept car, I still love the looks of it, given the era, and the fact that the car theoretically could live forever, given it never would rust…but bad business decisions ruined it, of course.
