Yes, that's why these other documentary filmmakers restage events and film them as if they were the original events. This does not make a documentary "fake". It's an accepted practice to tell a true story.
I accepted that some parts were probably restaged i.e. Michael Moore style. I also accepted that these nerds would videotape themselves on the toilet if they thought it might end up in one of their documentaries. That's why there was a lot of poor quality footage from handheld consumer cameras in it.
And as far as it being good, that's debatable.
I enjoyed it. That's not debatable.
