I happily do not have cable (or any television reception for that matter) so I was unable to watch the Academy Awards tonight. However, I did watch what I believe to be the best documentary of the year, or even decade, The Fog of War. After watching this enthralling film, it dawned on me that it was not even nominated for "Best Documentary." Not that it really matters, but I would like to know why. Does anyone know? I believe it should have been in the running, but could be mistaken. Errol Morris directing, Philip Glass on score, and Robert S. McNamara as conductor (in a non-musical sense of course). Politics aside, this movie is great. I just wonder if anyone agrees with me?
Ah ha... Google to the recue! Logically, it didn't win this year... because it won last year. I would erase the previous paragraph, but I would like to maintain my emphasis on the quality that is last year's best documentary film.
Taking in account this new mental cinematic paradigm, I would like to congratulate this year's winner, which I unfortunately did not see. Super-size Me was, however, also a spectacular film, which I did see.
So, in conclusion, watch The Fog of War, because it's good, and good people like good things... I think Socra-Plato said that. So do it!
