True/False 2016: 'Weiner' Review

Film festivals are funny things: One day, you hear glowing things about a documentary, the next day you encounter a wave of dismissive opinions. This happened at Sundance with Weiner, about disgraced politician Anthony Weiner. I didn't see it there, but people warned me off it initially. Then, I started hearing from folks who loved it. I finally caught up with the movie at True/False; my take is up at Screen International.
