Upcoming Documentaries

Despite being excited about Speed Racer, I find myself unimpressed by the vast majority of the movies that come out. Two documentaries that are on tap look really great though.

The first is American Teen (via Slashfilm, and again):

The second is Surfwise (via Slashfilm):

“Why Do We Love Reality TV but Avoid Documentary Movies?”

Heh. I love documentaries. Supposedly when I was about 4 or 5 years old we were visiting my Grandmother (Mom’s side). They watched soap operas in that house, loved the. The story goes that I grew bored with the soap operas and asked if we could put the tv “on a documentary or something?”

I can probably rattle off, no peeking at IMDB, a list of documentaries I have enjoyed. Ooh, what a great way to procrastinate. Here goes: Crumb, Hoop Dreams, No Maps for These Territories, Fog of War, Eyes on the Prize, Spellbound,, The Corporation, The War Room, Roger & Me, Fahrenheit 9/11, Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, The Thin Blue Line, Rock School, New York Doll, Red Hot Ballroom.

Mind you, most of these movies I saw in the theater. That took me maybe 3 minutes, and I was barely trying! I do love a good documentary.
