This ranking is for more its historical importance than the film itself. This is an amazing document of the union democracy rebellions of the 70s, an underrated and incredibly important issue in U.S. history. This is a very valuable document. I'm so excited it still exists and even more excited that Fandor has made it available. American archival collections are full of films falling apart about this or that seemingly minor issue, but they all have historical value. Keeping them available is so important.
