Hot Docs...

Not doctors, documentaries!! Toronto Star film critic Geoff Pevere came up with a list of must see documentaries that are available on DVD. I love docs so much that i will watch them even if they are on VHS!

Anyways in the article he also taps into the rise in the popularity of documentaries. I may or may not disagree with what he has to say. But the rise in popularity of historical documentaries, commemorative peices and biographies relates, at least tangentially, to Chapter One of my diss. Here i look at the rise of memorialization in this post modern era. Gripping, i know. But it's funny how you become so absorbed in your own work that eventually everything you encounter in your daily life comes to be related to it somehow.
