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...

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...

The Look of Silence (2015)

Joshua Oppenheimer's follow-up, or companion piece, to his extraordinary The Act of Killing, The Look of Silence feels slightly smaller-scale, which is not necessarily a bad thing in this case. It follows an Indonesian man, an optician, who interviews various individuals who were purportedly involved with the killings of so-called communists in the 1960s. The man's brother was killed during that time, and he proves to be an assertive, canny interviewer; one subject angrily says that he's even pushier than "Josh." Oppenheimer includes several asides, visits with the interviewer's century-old parents, and other striking images that allow time for the atrocities, and the human memory, to sink in. The Act of Killing was nominated for an Oscar, but did not win, and this one could make up for it. read more...

99 Homes (2015)

The acclaimed indie filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo), who regularly and bravely focuses on heartbreaking trials of life while keeping his stories rooted in humanity, turns in some of his finest work. A work of great power and subtlety, 99 Homes manages to talk about one of today's most pressing and troubling issues without getting preachy or overbearing. At the same time, the movie borrows the classical structure of the Faust story, but still manages to feel immediate and relevant. read more...
