    Finders Keepers

    ★★★½

    You know when you ask somebody that you are passingly familiar with how things are going? If you're like most people, you aren't really expecting an answer. Maybe something like "ahh...same ol' same ol."

Like some of the best documentaries I've seen this thing ends up being something completely different I'm sure Fielder…
