I 50 documentari consigliati da Current Tv

Lo scorso agosto Morgan Spurlock, il regista di Supersize me, ha condotto per Current Tv lo show 50 Documentaries to See before You Die. Come fa notare Mike Hale sul blog Arts Beat del New York Times, non si sta parlando dei migliori documentari di sempre: la selezione parte dal 1988, l’anno in cui è uscito The Thin Blue Line di Errol Morris, considerato il padre del “documentario moderno”. Quindi niente Frederick Wiseman, Michael Apted e fratelli Maysles.

Sempre Hale sottolinea la scelta della giuria selezionatrice di aver incluso nella lista solo produzioni story-based o issue-based, simili a ciò che tutti conosciamo formalmente come “documentario”, scartando quindi, ad esempio, le sperimentazioni di Andy Warhol e Chris Marker. Basta premesse, dopo il salto trovate la classifica completa.

Come per ogni classifica che si rispetti è divertente scorrere i commenti dei lettori, sempre indignati.

MorMorgan Spurlock begins the series by touching down in sunny Florida. He is traveling to meet Billy Mitchell, star of Seth Gordon’s cult documentary “King of Kong.” Billy is the controversial gamer whom everybody loves to hate, a man of legendary bravado and mullet, a genius of the joystick. But what effect did the film have on his life? Did he mind being cast as the baddie? And is he still the king of “Donkey Kong”? Morgan is on his way to find out.

But before he gets there, Morgan counts down from No. 50 to 41, gaining insights from a range of directors and commentators, including Kevin Macdonald; Jeffrey Blitz; Seth Gordon; Stacy Peralta; Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman; Donna DeLory; Alex Gibney; Brian Graden; Nanette Burstein; and Henry Rollins. gan Shhpurlock begins the series by touching down in sunny Florida.
