The Reliable Source reports on "Hating Breitbart," a new documentary about the late conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart:
[Andrew] Marcus was fascinated by Breitbart’s ability to connect with the crowds and pitched a documentary — a cross between U2’s “Rattle and Hum” and “This Is Spinal Tap,” in his mind. “You’re a rock star who doesn’t take himself too seriously,” he recalls telling Breitbart. The two spent more than two years criss-crossing the country together until Breitbart’s sudden death from a heart attack in March. He was 43.
The documentary was originally scheduled to open Friday in a limited national release, but producers delayed it one week while appealing the Motion Picture Association of America’s “R” rating for the many f-bombs on screen. (A MPAA rep told us the appeal is subject to the release date and rules of the ratings system.)
