13th (2016)

Director Ava Duvernay last brought us Selma (2014), an unexpectedly brilliant biopic of Martin Luther King Jr. and his 1965 march in Alabama to call attention to voting rights. In a controversial Oscar season, her film won an Oscar for Best Song, and received a nomination for Best Picture, and nothing else. Now Duvernay takes off the gloves and offers 13th (2016), a shattering, essential new documentary. While the end of slavery and the beginning of the Civil Rights movement were great moments in American history, Duvernay's film argues that they are connected by a long string of whites in power, cultivating a fear of black people and using that fear to acquire not only more power, but wealth. read more...

Citizenfour (2014)

Sometimes a documentary goes beyond all critical appraisal and simply needs to be seen by every American. Although I understand that a theatrical release gives it more credibility, frankly it ought to be shown free, online. Perhaps in a few months, it will. read more...

O.J.: Made in America (2016)

When this first showed up in the mail, I admit I scoffed. Why would I want to watch this circus again? But damned if this 7-3/4 hour documentary about O.J. Simpson doesn't emerge not only as a great movie about racism and celebrity, but also an essential epic about America. It also happens to be one of the best movies of the year. Filmmaker Ezra Edelman seems to have had unlimited access to all things O.J. Simpson, including documents, photos, audio, and footage of his remarkable football career, his relationships, the murder trial, and the aftermath. He patiently unfolds the man's life story, getting into all the nooks and crannies. He explores how Simpson's success was based on how he deliberately avoided identifying with the African-American community. Then, when the infamous trial turned out to be about race, everything was turned on its side. When the trial was in the news, it just made your head spin, but here, with new commentary from many of the players, its tragic depth begins to unfold. It begins to unpack the idea that race is not about identity, but about perception, and it can be spun and reflected and refracted in any number of ways, to suit either side. We have a long way to go, but this film is an indispensable part of the discourse. O.J.: Made in America was submitted as both a television documentary and a theatrical documentary, so it's now being considered for top ten lists and awards from both communities, much to the chagrin of purists. read more...

Chasing Ice (2012)

It has now been six years since Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth (2006) tried to warn us all about the increasing threat of global warming, now called the Climate Crisis. At the time Gore tried to argue that his film wasn't political, but his presence -- and the threatening title -- made it so anyway. One of the people who wasn't convinced was National Geographic photographer James Balog. read more...

Merchants of Doubt (2015)

Directed by Robert Kenner, of the excellent documentary Food, Inc. (2009), Merchants of Doubt feels a little scattershot, as if it were unsure exactly whether to stay on the topic of misdirection or to dive directly into the immediate and pressing issue of climate change. When it is on topic, it's quite educational, illustrating just how people are hired for the purpose of misrepresenting data (or presenting false data) and how they cast doubt. read more...
