I have always been a bigger fan of movies than documentaries mainly because I am always more interested in the representation of reality than the reality itself.
The old way of doing documentaries just based on interviews and facts always left me a bit empty but I really believe there is a new approach for this genre. Recently I have been watching quite a lot of documentaries which, in my opinion, are taking a new dimension showing to the audience a real story using techniques based on films.
Although I am still not sure if the directors are taking a new step on documentaries or the reality is becoming more unreal? Reading the news nowadays it really feels like the reality is produced by Hollywood!
I leave you with a bunch of documentaries which are worthy to watch:
-"Searching for sugar Man" - I already mentioned about “Searching ForSugar Man” in a previous post- I strongly recommend everyone to watch it; the story and the way the director takes you through it is just stunning. If by any chance you have lost hope, please watch it!
