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...

The Corporation (2004)

Joining forces with Bowling for Columbine and Super Size Me, The Corporation forms a new documentary subgenre: the angry, anti-corporate rant. Directed by Mark Achbar, Jennifer Abbott and Joel Bakan, the film begins with the fascinating discovery that corporations are considered people under the law. Charting their rise and eventual consumption of America, the filmmakers conclude that if a corporation is indeed a person, it fits all the criteria of a psychopath. The film tells many stories to illustrate its thesis, including the astonishing one about Fox News reporters breaking the story about bovine growth hormones and how the corporation who manufactured them successfully pressured Fox to keep the story off the air. It also tells hopeful stories, such as one carpet manufacturer who strives to make his company completely self-sustaining in the next decade. Interviewees such as Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky chime in with their opinions, and it feels like a breath of air. Running 145 minutes, the film barely has enough time to get its main points in, and it could have gone on much longer and still remained fascinating. Maybe we can hope for an uncut version to run as a TV miniseries. 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...

Dirty Wars (2013)

An Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, Dirty Wars follows journalist Jeremy Scahill of The Nation as he investigates secret nighttime raids by American soldiers in Afghanistan. Eventually he learns that these raids, performed by the all-powerful Joint Special Operations Command, have taken place in countries not actually at war, and that several civilians have been killed. He makes one astounding discovery after another, including that an American citizen has been targeted by his own country. But no matter how quickly or efficiently a "kill list" is completed, there's always another, longer list waiting. read more...
