Kevin B. Lee’s new video takes the top 30 documentaries of all time (at least as voted upon in Sight & Sound‘s poll earlier this year) and stitches them together in reverse order, building from #30 (Leviathan) to #1 (The Man with the Movie Camera) by finding a logical chain of association from one film to the next. The on-duty policeman in Chronicle of a Summer) who refuses to talk about his personal happiness on the job (off-duty he might have given a different answer) sets up the recreated killing of a cop in The Thin Blue Line, whose night-and-fog-machine landscape logically leads to (yes) Night and Fog. And so on, then recapped at appropriately lightning speed at the end to match Movie Camera‘s rhythms. (Via Fandor.)
