Capturing Reality: The Art Of Documentary: Truth vs. Reality

10 November 2011 10:55 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Capturing Reality: The Art Of Documentary Review Pt.1 The problem with those comments is that none of them really addresses the fact that documentaries are not really concerned with truth, but with reality vs. fiction. Many people confuse truth with reality, and given this film’s title it would have behooved Ferrari to explore the very difference between reality and truth that so many of the interviewees declaim. The two words are not synonyms. Truth requires an act of volition whereas reality does not. If I am wearing a blue shirt, that is reality. If you say to me, "Dan, you are wearing a blue shirt," that is a truth. Reality doesn’t care if it is noticed or not, but a truth always requires an act of notice.

Movie Poster of the Week: Chris Ware's "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives"

11 February 2011 8:09 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

A couple of months ago I featured all the international posters for Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Palme d’Or routing Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, but this new poster, designed by the great Chris Ware for Strand’s Us theatrical release, is far and away the best of them all, and definitely an early contender for the best of 2011. I’ve been a fan of Ware’s for many years and his one-sheet for The Savages was one of my favorite posters of the 00s. This one is even better.

When I heard on the design grapevine that Ware was working on the poster I was thrilled and also curious as to how his sensibility would mesh with that of this most enigmatic and lovely of films.
