"I've always found this a very strange moment of self delusion in the documentary."
I am not disagreeing with that, but don't you think this is a natural human reaction? Writers don't like being edited (at least beyond mistakes lol), baseball players don't like being benched, politicians don't like being voted out. Maybe the articulated expression of that reaction is strange, but I don't think the reaction itself is. Even if it is delusional. :-)
