I'm such a documentary junkie - Jean-Pierre gets so mad at me cause have our Netflix queue is full of documentaries.
What luck that today you can read two awesome posts from folks who have a lot to say about docs.
Eugene Hernandez great post from IDFA: http://www.indiewire.com/movies/2008/11/iw_insider_euge.html
Thom Powers new post: http://stfdocs.com/blog/comments/wanted_documentary_critics/
I would add to the list of great documentaries one must see:
SILVERLAKE LIFE: A VIEW FROM HERE - bring your tissues.
ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD
SEX: THE ANNABEL CHONG STORY
SHAKESPEARE AND VICTOR HUGO'S INTIMACIES
ALONE IN FOUR WALLS
Oh I could go on and on... docs rock.
