Grizzly Man (2005)

Werner Herzog's mad quest for truth of vision has over the years perfectly adapted itself from his insane jungle epics with Klaus Kinski to the documentary format. This year, three Herzog documentaries have opened: The White Diamond, about the attempt to fly an experimental airship over a waterfall, Wheel of Time, about the Dalai Lama and an annual Buddhist gathering, and this one, about Timothy Treadwell and his efforts to study and protect Alaskan grizzly bears. read more...

Into the Inferno (2016)

What I love about Werner Herzog's films is that they have a genuine sense of curiosity. They are open to veer off track, to forget the original plan. They wander wherever the story takes them, following the most interesting thread. Herzog's newest documentary Into the Inferno (2016) — a Netflix original — began more or less on the heels of his Oscar-nominated doc Encounters at the End of the World (2007), on which he met volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer. Now he meets up with Dr. Oppenheimer again for a film that is, ostensibly, about volcanos. But, of course, it detours into several other fascinating ideas. read more...

An Inconvenient Truth (2006)

If you see only one movie this year, make it An Inconvenient Truth. It may not be the year's best movie, or its most entertaining, but it's certainly the most terrifyingly crucial. read more...

Monrovia, Indiana (2018)

The great documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman returns with this look at a small town in America's heartland. It's presumably an attempt to find out what makes Trump supporters tick, though politics are rarely mentioned, and such an attempt would probably be futile anyway. Instead, Wiseman does what he does best, observing the residents of Monrovia doing what they do. There are city council meetings, peeks inside a gun shop and a tattoo parlor, and the film admires the crops of corn that seem to be the center of the town's business. The camera looks at a pizza parlor, and in a most disturbing moment, a veterinary clinic (where a dog undergoes surgery). As usual, there is no narration, are no issues tackled, and no arguments made one way or the other. Wiseman is the master of "fly-on-the-wall" filmmaking, getting his camera so close and so unobtrusive, that none of his subjects ever seem to be aware that he's even there. They just talk as if no camera were present. His selection of scenes paints a portrait of a small town, both dignified and respectful, but also a little depressing. Regardless, everyone in America should be watching Wiseman regularly; he's a national treasure. read more...

In Jackson Heights (2015)

Frederick Wiseman (Boxing Gym, At Berkeley, National Gallery) returns with another of his singular documentaries. As with his other films, In Jackson Heights employs his unique fly-on-the-wall technique, wherein he somehow gets his camera close to people, to record their natural actions and reactions, without them seeming to notice or care. It feels like we're actually visiting. Jackson Heights is a neighborhood in Queens, NY, which boasts the largest melting pot in the world. Apparently some 167 languages are spoken in this one area. We meet some of these cultures and view them at work, and we see much preparation of delicious-looking food. We hear from gay groups and Latino immigrants, and we sit in on some classes. We also sit in on some neighborhood meetings because, of course, rich white people have begun to notice the neighborhood -- it's a quick train ride into Manhattan -- and have begun to attempt buying it up and gentrifying it. In one horrifying speech, a neighborhood man explains just how they do this, and folks wind up with no choice left but to sell. But despite the threat of losing everything, we see that the locals are strong, kind, wise people who have found a kind of harmony. (See Wiseman's official page for more info.) read more...
