Is this a pro-meshichist documentary, or anti? I cant tell from the trailer. Can you post it if/when it's released?
Lol really?

Chabad isn't a party, group, sect, culture, or anything of the sort. It is a Chassidus - an ideology, a derech of Torah. The natural outcome of Chabad Chassidus is shlichus, mivtzoim, untucked shirts, etc. Agudah, for instance, is a political organization representing a certain group of Jews, not a belief system.

So you're saying Koplonko is a Mashichist?
Even an anti would say Yom Hilula or the like.

The natural outcome of a derech of Torah is...untucked shirts....
It sounded good until the untucked shirts...lol

So it's a Machlokes Dan and ExGingi what Koplonko holds. :)

Sure, it's in Shulchan Aruch Harav.
Next you also want to wear a tie?

Not what @Yehuda57 was referring to, but I'll run with this anyway. :D

Untucked shirts with solid black ties, and suspenders under the TK (all under a custom tailored silk kapote) is the ultimate spitz Chabad fashion statement.

To me, an outsider, it sounds like the people that are featured are saying pretty crazy stuff; and I'm not sure if it's highlighting them ironically, or seriously.

Yup. R' Yoel Kahan was famous for saying pretty crazy stuff.

Lemaase, I didn't get an answer, but I got nitpicking on not using the pure chabad dialect. Nu.
