Do Documentaries Really Matter?

user
After the intense (and enjoyable) experience of sitting through at least 15 documentary feature films over 4 days at the just concluded AFI-Discovery Channel Documentary Festival, the question organically arose: do documentaries really matter? As someone who trained in documentary filmmaking techniques (and who made a few, best to be forgotten non-fiction nothings) and an admirer of the stamina, grit and determination of the documentary filmmaker, my answer appeared more hopeful than det...

Documentaries At The Crossroads

user
  by Sandy Mandelberger, Festival Dailies Editor As SILVERDOCS, the nation's most prominent documentary film festival, begins to hit its stride, it is worth mentioning that the documentary film has not had the charmed life at the box office as we saw earlier in the decade. While not every film can hope to reach the stratosphere of FAHRENHEIT 911 (which had a record-shattering $120 million international box office gross in 2004), the recent crop of documentaries coming to theaters ...

Melbourne Film Fest will open with Sicko and close with his Is England

user
Melbourne International Film Festival will open on July 25th with much lauded and always debated Michael Moore's latest offering Sicko, which had its world premiere at last month's Cannes Film Festival. "Sicko proves the power of documentary to place important issues on the social and political agenda - I can't say I've always agreed with him, particularly the ethics of that scene with Charlton Heston, but this is Mike Moore in vintage form. Sicko is brilliant in its execution, full of humour an...

Movie Topic: MICHAEL MOORE AND THE RETARDATION OF THE DOCUMENTARY FORM

user
In times of turmoil, the role of the documentary filmmaker becomes a thriving and essential function. When handled responsibly, their films can wake us up to a multitude of issues we haven't previously considered or been privey to. With our country at war, several filmmakers have produced works aimed at knocking the current adminsitration's sloppy tactics and the senselessness of the war efforts they foster. By far, it was the Vietnam-era film "Hearts and Minds" that became the beacon of what...

American Politics With A French Twist

user
It is should be news to no one that the Americans and the French are still locked in their love/hate relationship. We Americans do love the French culture and its emphasis on beauty, refinement and good taste. The French do love our the American can-do attitude and our pioneering spirit. But since 9/11, our different geopolitics has driven a wedge into that relationship that has pushed us both into separate corners. Perhaps that is the reason why so many American films that are openly critical ...

It's Politics!

Politics is the theme of the day at Cannes May 17. Young Austrian Hans Weingartner --brings German film up to speed with 'The Edukators'. "Many young people yearn for radical political change, but there's a real lack of new suggestions," says Hans Weingartner.
