2010 Documentary edition
Pat Tillman Story 10/10. Excellent, heatbreaking, and infuriating how we all got sucked into the war propaganda. I'm ashamed of myself.
Waiting For Superman 9/10. America has the world's best higher education system and a substandard gradeschool education. Why is that: The teacher's unions.
Last Train Home 9/10. Really sad how millions of people in China only exist to work 15 hour days making jeans for fat Americans - and do so while living 1,000 miles away from their family for 51 weeks out of the year. I had absolutely no idea. Also kind of cool that no matter how different their circumstances, teenage girls are all the same.
The three above are Must-Sees of the year.
Inside Job 8/10. Really good. However, they blamed conspiracies and underhanded greed to things that were really the fault of incompetence and and the Milgram effect
Exit Through the Gift Shop 8/10 - the history of graffiti artists and the time with Banksy were awesome, but the ending and the whole Mister BrainWash bit was annoying and seemed disingenuous.
Restrepo 6/10. Kind of overrated. But it documented some pretty heavy fighting in Afghanistan, so it was compelling in that manner, especially since one of the main people was killed during the filming and so the emotional fallout from that was gritty.
The Lottery 6/10 - a similar subject to Waiting For Superman, but not done as well.
Client #9 - 6/10. This was nothing more than a puff piece about Spitzer. The guy was a massive hypocrite as are the rest of these anti-prostitution/drug warriors who think that THEY can handle it, but others shouldn't. instead of getting into detail about his various malfeasance throughout his career, they made it about the massive right wing conspiracy against him. Poor Eliott.
A Film Unfinished - 6/10. It seemed like it was going to be a lot more interesting than it really was.
Collapse - 5/10. He annoyed me. He smoked too much. What he claims as "facts" aren't really so much.
Joan Rivers - 4/10. I hate Joan Rivers. This made her go from annoying as hell, to pathetic.
