I have been writing occasional pieces at Film Experience since Nathaniel was kind enough to ask me to. Just some FYC stuff here and there, but I wrote a piece today about the documentaries of 2008. It's sad that only three of the Academy's fifteen shortlisted titled have actually received theatrical distribution here - and one of those is an Australian documentary so you would hope as much.
My favourite documentary of 2008 has been Yung Chang's Up the Yangtze and I will keep mentioning this movie until people get off their arse and go see it. It's all well and good for people to see Man on Wire and say "well that's my one documentary for the year. i am so cultured", but they really shouldn't. Click here for the piece.
