Another Great Year of Documentaries

Heck, it's been a great decade for documentaries, and I'm happy that so many are now becoming mainstream films. This year there are two very notable, and somehow strangely related, documentaries: Grizzly Man and March of the Penguins.

Both are recommended.

Grizzly Man tells the story of Timothy Treadwell, someone who loved bears too much. See the film. It is unsettling and disturbing and thought-provoking. I'm not going to say any more other than here's an interesting review of it.

Penguins is also excellent.

Now if only some American distributor would get their act together and distribute Darwin's Nighmare.
