Existential Review: Documental. Amazon’s exclusive comedy survival game is arbitrary, frustrating, and nearly devoid of humor. It’s time again to talk about a review that was so painful I had to walk away from it. Documental is a Japanese elimination-style competitive show where ten stand-up comedians are put in one room and tasked with not laughing at each other’s antics. It is the brain child of comedian and director Hitoshi Matsumoto, who delighted me with his feature film Big Man Japan. Documental, however, is a mess of arbitrary rules, capricious judgements, and a structure that stifles any spontaneous comedy. I tried to sit through three episodes and wound up shutting it off every time. Documental (2018) Popular comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto
