Did anyone else see Salinger?

Not what I meant. In part, Salinger had a large female audience, particularly because of the back cover (which was unheard of). He was deeply interested in younger women, which could have easily been more explored, but the film chose a far different route. Also: why the recreations that serve little purpose? It felt very exploitive.
I was disappointed, but I have a broadcast journalism background so I watch docs with a particularly critical eye. Of course it's a great topic, but the doc was a bit indulgent, which made it seem lengthy. Not a lot of insight per capita, but, yes, revealing to some degree. I thought it was poorly edited, frankly.
