Finding Vivian Maier (2013)
An entertaining 83 minute sales pitch
This film covers the fascinating discovery and commercializing of one of the un-seen masters of 20th century photography.
You probably want to start with the BBC documentary about Vivian Maier before watching this one, called The Vivian Maier Mystery. It has more facts, and research, and explains what is known about her life in a definitive fashion. The BBC film also presents multiple viewpoints on key topics, and was not financed by the company that sells her prints.
That said, the tale as told in Finding Vivian Maier is good reality TV drama, and has more of an emotional tug -- and really makes you want to go out and buy some of this artists' work.
Al assifa (2000)
An interesting and unheard perspective
Ever wonder what it was like to be in the middle east during the Gulf War of the early 90s? Sure, many films and TV shows have portrayed what it was like for the UN forces. This film takes you into the melee from the perspective of Egyptians -- who were sharply divided about the war -- and their daily lives, which, as one sees, form the basis of their foundation for understanding/approaching the war. And it really is these "every day" realities that make up the bulk of the film.
