Mockumentary A Convenient Truth Is a Tad Late to the Party

17 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

A Convenient Truth, a mockumentary that sends up corporate and political can-do-ism, lame energy policy, and maybe the documentary genre itself, is a tad late to the party. We have many projects of this ilk, from the quarter-century-old The Onion to relative newcomers The Daily Show and the late Colbert Report. Unfortunately for A Convenient Truth, those productions are consistently sharp, quick, and timely, and delivered to a slice of the population eager to laugh at any skewering of the day's corporate, political, and cultural bullshit. Dominick Bagnato's film suffers from the direct comparison he's made to Al Gore's powerful An Inconvenient Truth, which sparked our current climate change conversation and the grinding denier-m »

Tim McGraw Performing Glen Campbell’s Best Original Song Nominee ‘Not Gonna Miss You’ at Oscars

29 January 2015 7:07 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tim McGraw will step in for Glen Campbell at the 87th Oscars to perform the country music icon’s Best Original Song nominee, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”

The song, co-written by Campbell and Julian Raymond for the documentary “Glen Campbell … I’ll Be Me,” is among four other nominees: “Everything Is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie,” “Glory” from “Selma,” “Grateful” from “Beyond the Lights” and “Lost Stars” from “Begin Again.”

Campbell himself is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, and is in an assisted-living facility specializing in Alzheimer’s care in Tennessee. He is no longer able to perform the song, »

Oscar Documentaries Take Diverse Approaches to Subjects

28 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From photography to warfare, conservation to whistleblowing, this year’s five Oscar nominated documentaries are united by overlapping themes and topics of interest, but remain uniformly distinct in their approach.

Leading the quintet is Laura Poitras’ “Citizenfour,” the highest-grossing and highest-profile nominee. The verite-style portrait of Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden gives audiences a voyeuristic peek inside Snowden’s week in Hong Kong when the information he leaked started going public, and shows the human side of a man who the media nearly turned into a myth.

The pic has cleaned up in Oscar precursors, garnering best doc wins from the Gotham and Intl. Documentary Assn. awards, the four top critics groups (New York, Los Angeles, London and National Society) and nominations from BAFTA and the Spirits. It also marks Poitras’ second Oscar nom. She was in contention in 2007 for “My Country, My Country” but lost to heavyweight “An Inconvenient Truth. »

Oscar-Winning Original Songs Split Between Part of Plot and End Credits

26 January 2015 8:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Of the five Oscar-nominated original songs for the 87th Academy Awards, Selma’s “Glory” and Beyond the Light’s “Grateful” are the only songs that solely play over the end credits of their respective film. The other three songs — “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Lost Stars” from Begin Again and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me — are all performed at some point during the film.

Now, that’s not to say that the end-credits songs aren’t relevant to the plot. Both “Grateful” and “Glory” stick with the themes of their respective films and summarize relevant events, even if they aren’t integral to each plot’s progression.

“Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie is featured in the film as a popular song in the Lego universe, one the characters sing along to, but »

The Top 25 Oscar Documentary Snubs of the Past 30 Years

23 January 2015 8:16 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor 

After narrowing the Oscar documentary feature shortlist to five at the 87th Academy Award nominations Jan. 15, a number of notable exclusions were featured, particularly Al Hicks‘ Keep on Keepin’ On, which documents the mentorship and friendship of a jazz legend and a blind piano prodigy, and Steve James‘ Life Itself, about the life and career of famed film critic Roger Ebert. (James is no stranger to snubs and the exclusion of his 1994 film Hoop Dreams led to rule reform within the documentary category.)  Both films hold 97 percent positive ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.

Some films surprised when they didn’t even land a spot on the shortlist, such as Red Army, which examines the rise and fall of the Soviet Union’s hockey team from the perspective of its coach. That film holds a 100 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In light of these best documentary feature snubs, »
