In all, Brickumentary is a fun and fascinating overview of a global phenomenon. It engages and informs and provides a broad look at many facets of the creativity that has been channeled into uses for this simple toy.

With a late August release date and very little fanfare, my expectations going into this movie were exceedingly low.
