Watching the Documentary Finalists: Part 3 - Confrontations

Glennhere looking at each of the 15 Academy's documentary finalists from which five will be nominated for the Oscar.

We're at the final of three parts looking at the 15 finalists for the Academy's best documentary category.In thefirst partwe examined people,in thesecond partwe looked at world politics,and now confrontations.It's something that can come in a myriad of forms.Confrontations can be between enemies on TV sets around the nation or in the towns and jungles of Indonesia.Whether it's the confrontation of death,or the confrontation of major religious corporation,these films encompass big themes that have a longstanding tradition in cinema but each go about it some wildly different ways.

All that after the jump

IDA Nominations Honor Amy,Kurt,Nina and Marlon

Glennhere.The nominations and specialty category winners were announced today for the 31st International Documentary Association Awards.It's a line-up heavy on artist portraits,Ukraine,and films heavy on the use of archive footage.Last year's IDA list featured three eventual Oscar nominees (Finding VivianMaier,Salt of the Earthand the winner of bothCitizenfour),but other years since 2010 the number has only been two.Except 2011 when the IDA people went way off course (in the best possible way) and awardedPatricioGuzman'sNostalgia for the Lightwith no eventual Oscar nominees in their list (Guzman'sThe Pearl Buttondidn't find favor from them this year,though).

I see no reason why this year won't follow that ratio status quo.But firstly let's take a look at the nominees.

BEST FEATURE

  • Amy
  • The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution
  • Listen to MeMarlon
  • The Look of Silence
  • The Russian Woodpecker
  • What Happened,MissSimone?

I am extremely pleased to see the excellentRussian Woodpeckercited here.If Oscar could pay attention to that superb examination of paranoia amid the Ukrainian revolution then I would be more than ecstatic.And if you have the chance to see it then do yourself a favour.But what about the rest...

Hot Docs "Best of Enemies"

Amircontinues his coverage of Toronto's Hot Docs festival.Will he spot any future Oscar nominees?

It is hard to imagine today that there was once an America where political debates in the media were sensational,not just sensationalized.Harder yet is to envision a time when conservative political commentators weren't complete buffoons,but rather eloquent,smart thinkers.That is exactly the time thatBest of Enemiestransports us to,Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville's film about the televised debates leading up to the 1968 Republican and Democratic national conventions.ABC,then trailing as America's third network and in search of a ratings boost,decided to pit two of the country's most famous commentators against one another: the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F.Buckley Jr.The two were known to dislike each other and their pairing on live TV was sure to cause a stir.

Their prediction proved to be correct when on the 8th night of a series of incendiary discussions,Buckley reacted to Vidal's name-calling and being labeled a "crypto-Nazi"with a momentary burst of anger...

Now listen,you queer,stop calling me a crypto-Nazi or I'll sock you in the face and you'll stay plastered."
