BFI Takes Sight and Sound Documentary Poll to the Big Screen

1 July 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The British Film Institute has a mouth-watering July program for across-the-pond documentary buffs and moviegoers. The series culls from BFI's most recent Sight & Sound Poll of 340 critics, programmers and filmmakers in search of the greatest docs of all time. The program, detailed here, spans the birth and life of the genre, from early ethnographic classic "Nanook of the North" and earth-shaking Soviet experiment "Man with a Movie Camera" to Claude Lanzmann's Holocaust epic "Shoah" (here screened in its entirety) and Errol Morris' "The Thin Blue Line," which in 1988 was an early example of the true crime mysteries that are now the craze of the zeitgeist.  Read More: British Film Institute Unlocks Ambitious Plan to Digitize Films The rest of the series includes a double bill of Chris Marker's ode to memory, "Vertigo" and cats "Sans Soleil" and Alain Resnais' profoundly upsetting concentration camp doc »

Daily | AFI Docs 2015

17 June 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

As AFI Docs opens in Washington, DC, the Post's Ann Hornaday sketches a brief history of the American documentary, from the cinéma vérité of the 60s (Robert Drew, Richard Leacock, D.A. Pennebaker, Albert Maysles) through the personal essays of the 80s (Ross McElwee and Michael Moore) to the day "Errol Morris revolutionized the industry by introducing reenactments and stylized cinematic flourishes in the true-crime thriller The Thin Blue Line. (Actually, he reintroduced reenactment, if you consider the work of Robert Flaherty in 1922’s Nanook of the North.)" We're gathering previews of this year's 13th edition. » - David Hudson »

Ever Wonder What Orson Welles' Top Ten Favorite Films Arec Well, Here You Go...

20 February 2015 9:15 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Orson Welles indisputably made a huge impact on the film industry, both in terms of technical proficiency and storytelling sophistication. However, Welles was never the biggest fan of films themselves. He just saw it as a way to tell stories he wanted to. That makes sense to me of how he approached filmmaking. Had he been a movie fan, I don't know if he would have thought so much outside of the box about to make them than he did. That isn't to say he didn't like all movies. In the early 1950s, Welles managed to cobble together a list of his ten favorite films for Sound on Sight (via Open Culture). As he had only been exposed to a couple of decades of cinema, I think this is a very interesting list, and one that makes a lot of sense for someone like Welles. City Lights (dir. Charles Chaplin) Greed (dir. »
