Dogtown & Z-Boys (2002)

I know exactly nothing about skateboarding, but this wild, exuberant documentary puts it all in perspective, outlining a crew of 12 surfers-turned-skaters who pioneered the sport -- and, some say, the art form. Directed by the most financially successful of the group, Stacy Peralta, the film features dazzling vintage 1970s footage mixed with current talking head interviews. One quibble: We have no idea how the 12 skaters related to one another on a personal level; we only see them separately trying to out-skate and out-talk one another. Sean Penn narrates. Columbia/Tristar's DVD comes with a commentary track, deleted scenes, and extra skating footage. read more...

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007)

Billy Mitchell has held the world record on the video game "Donkey Kong" since 1982, Steve Wiebe wishes to challenge that title, and the winner will make the Guinness Book of World Records. Seth Gordon's documentary is not particularly journalistic, but rather refreshingly, and specifically, skewed. Gordon paints the champ -- with his bizarre mane of coiffed heavy-metal hair -- as arrogant and conniving, while the challenger comes across as a lovable hard-luck case; thus the film magnificently, and almost inadvertently, captures the story of the American Dream. Its 79 minutes is packed with unexpected, dramatic ups and downs, as well as information about the history, rules and behavior of the video game world. It could have been more thorough, but hardly less entertaining. read more...

Food, Inc. (2009)

I can't think of a more urgent, day-by-day issue for a feature documentary than food. Directed by Robert Kenner, Food, Inc. plays a bit like a collection of greatest hits from Super Size Me, Fast Food Nation and King Corn. But the film's bright, cheerful tone, colorful graphics and bite-sized snippets will hopefully appeal to larger crowd, thereby spreading this vital information to new areas. read more...

    Touch the Wall (2014)

    Touch the Wall plays a little bit like one of those official Olympic documentaries, where everything seems a bit too scrubbed clean, but it also doesn't resort to artificial drama, either. read more...
