Storyline

Amazing series primarily using Errol Morris' invention the Interrotron for unusual people to tell their outré stories directly into the camera to the viewer. Almost every half-hour documentary episode focused on 1 person, especially scientists, criminals, cranks, plus everyday folks in strange circumstances. First season seen on Bravo, second on IFC. Having a roaming crew at the ready led Morris to start filming his Academy Award winning documentary on Robert McNamara, "The Fog of War." Some subjects came from Morris' back-file, others were newly uncovered. First season included the autistic woman scientist who designs humane slaughterhouses (Temple Grandin, "Stairway to Heaven"), the parrot whose testimony in a trial exonerated a man wrongly accused of murdering his owner, the ex-lobster fisherman devoted to being the first to see a live giant squid ("Eyeball to Eyeball"), and a serial killer groupie. Second season had some 2 parters such as a haunted passenger who landed a crashing ... Written by David Stevens

Quite possibly the best documentary film maker around
20 November 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw four of these documentaries at the Melbourne International Film Festival this year not knowing anything about them at all, and they blew my mind.

I don't know if he takes hours and hours of footage and edits it down to a perfect half-hour, asks the perfect questions or it's just that his subjects are amazing, but this series is one of the funniest, saddest and most bizarre things I've ever seen.

I've heard that his other films are of a similar high standard, but I've only seen Mr. Death (Which is also really, really good).

I just wish more of his stuff was released in Australia.... (here's to hoping)
