Top 30 Documentary Hits of 2018

Each day a different year in review topic.Here'sGlenn Dunks...

Documentaries had one of their biggest years on record in 2018.In fact,the upper realms of non-fiction at the NorthAmerican box office started to look like what the foreign-language charts once looked like.There was at least one major cross-over smash,several very impressive eight-figuregrossers,a selection of not insignificant titles that did over one-million,anda long list of niche titles that did business anywhere from respectable to disappointing depending on expectations andrelease size.The year even started strong for docswith 2017 hitsBombshell the Hedy Lamarr StoryandFaces/Placescontinuing to earn tidy sums buoyed by word of mouth and an Oscar nomination respectively.

My columnDoc Cornerwill continue in 2019 so here's hoping the new year offers just as bountiful a crop.It's been good to see documentaries reaching the mainstream,zeitgeist conversation.

Heads up on what's newly available to you this week.Links go to previous coverage / reviews here at TFE.

DVD/Blu-Ray
Bel Canto-Julianne Moore as an opera singer.It was barely released
BlacKkKlansman- Spike Lee's best in ages.We think it might be competitive for Picture,Director,Adapted Screenplay,and Editing nominations.Do you?
Christopher Robin- Ewan McGregor stars as the boy all grown up revisited by Pooh,Tigger,and the Hundred Acre Woods gang.
Incredibles 2- The year's fourth biggest hit globally with 1.2 billion in the bank
Loving Pablo- Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem star in this drama about a journalist and a drug lord.
Papillon- Rami Malek and Charlie Hunnam remake the Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen prison drama
Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood- a salacious documentary about a man who allegedly secured same-sex sex for the movie stars of Old Hollywood.

iTunes 99¢ Deals
Tomb Raider-Alicia Vikander takes over as Lara Croft.We missed this in theaters and no one seemed to care at the time.'Is it worth 99¢?' he asked any of you that did.
Critically Acclaimed Animation- 99¢ deals this week on a bunch of underseen nominees for Best Animated Feature:The Secret of Kells,Ernest & Celestine,A Cat in Paris,andChico & Ritaas well as smaller foreign titles that weren't nominated but were well regarded includingWrinklesandThe Girl Without Hands

Brand New Streaming This Week
Into the Forest(Netflix) a forgotten 2015 sci-fi movie with Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood as sisters trying to survive a looming apocalypse
Latin History for Morons(Netflix) John Leguizamo's fourth solo Broadway outing (afterFreak,Sexaholic,andGhetto Klown) brought him his first Tony Award after two previous nominations.His first two acclaimed Off Broadway solo showsMambo MouthandSpic-O-Ramadefinitely led to boosts in his film/tv career.Writing talent is so handy for the actors that have it.When people aren't giving you great material,write your own vehicle!

I put on my best dad hat and I go to him and I say buddy,honey,I'm sorry but life is gonna fuck you sometimes.It just is.  And you're going to have to...I don't know,just keep changing positions until it feels good somehow.
