Well I guess that's up to the filmmaker.

I actually have no idea about whether the film was
finished and shown. I have certainly never seen it.

I expect Doug has no knowledge of the situation, just
as many of us on this List, have no knowledge of the
situation. However, as my mother was always so fond of
saying "2 wrongs don't make a right", so even if it
was true that Mary was being mean to people, it
doesn't mean that it is good to do the same in return.

You could also well be right that it is a publicity
stunt and even that Jim and Penny are in on the whole
thing. Hell perhaps you are even in on it too for all
I know! ;)

Regardless, I think it's just that people don't want
to see people throwing insults at one another on the
list, it's really nothing to do with what the
situation is, which probably a lot of us here know
very little about.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean here but yes there
is certainly a lack of understanding or even knowledge
of avant garde film history everywhere.
