“Boston” is a celebration of everything that is the Boston Marathon. From the storied history to the recent problems and even the terror attack; nothing is off limits. What really kicks up the film is the Matt Damon narration that creates an even flow throughout a rather lengthy documentary. While it might take a degree of fascination with the material to hang in there. If you’ve picked up Stronger or really want to make a night of it, then I recommend pairing this documentary with another release. This is more of an informative deep dive than a single outing film.
