We have had one hell of a month and I don’t mean in terms of Thursday Movie Picks. I mean in regards to what’s happening in the world… With most of my Thursday Movie Picks having been scheduled for this month, it’s only now that I sit down to write this one in complete amazement. Something is literally taking over the world and putting it in standstill. It sounds like a scifi movie and not the fun kind. So in order to get our minds off things, I recommend three documentary mini-series to make you feel even shittier. These are dramatic, sad, emotional and quite frankly, horrible stories. They are very interesting though, so at least there’s that.
This year I’ve been especially out of the box with some themes and this week won’t be any different. Today I’m going to look at an interview as an important part of the process of making a film. More specifically, a documentary! Because a good documentary is all about interviewing and telling a complex story, where a single interview could change the balance and the perception of the documentary itself.
