More Documentation

Well 2010 came and went without me making my first documentary. I did practice with my camera a little, we are still working on our instructional film for mud oven building. I watched a lot of documentaries. I love them. I mean, really, really love them. I have learned which styles I prefer (cinema vérité), techniques I can't stand (cutesy graphics), genres I crave (socio-cultural commentary) and that there are not enough hours in the day (that one I knew already).

So, I have archived my 2010 list in the sidebar under "For Future Reference." I have also started my list for 2011. I would love recommendations and I am always interested to hear what others think of films I have watched.

If I were to pick 5, 6 , okay 7 "must see" movies from last year's list (2010) they would be:

The Real Truth About Farmer John
Planet B-Boy
Nursery University
Monster Camp
The Education of Shelby Knox
I Like Killing Flies
My Flesh and Blood

Thanks for the list, and let me know if you find any more hours, I certainly am going to need them.
