    Yes, it has been discussed before. There are several big problems with the movie, the biggest of which is the fact that it is largely based on conjecture and theory since the Arbus estate was highly uncooperative in supporting the film. If you watch it as a movie from a novel, it's fine. If you want to learn something about Diane Arbus, it will teach you next to nothing factual.
