Better than any episode of ER
9 May 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Frederick Wiseman really set a new standard in regards to the Direct Cinema and the Cinema Verité movements. This is a very jarring experience for people who aren't used to watching documentaries. Once you see the part where the man starts puking all over the floor, one realizes the power of the moment reflected in this film. One of the best early documentaries, if not the best.
