DOC SHORT LIST
Over at The Hot Blog David Poland gives us some Oscar hopefuls for Best Doc. Though I haven’t seen all of these I would have to say one of my favorite docs of the year so far is Deborah Scranton‘s The War Tapes. When I saw it at Tribeca (where it won Best Doc) I was drawn not only by its originality of looking at the war but how Scranton stays with the soldiers as they return home and start a whole new battle: adjusting to civilian life. In some ways that’s harder than surviving the war.
