I'd be shocked if this was not mentioned: Bill Cunningham New York.  It was tragically neglected for an Oscar nod, but according to numerous documentary reviewers, it was one of the best of 2011. 

 

For anyone interested in fashion, this is an amazing story.  SEE IT. SEE IT. SEE IT.

Keep you eye out for upcoming documentary Shadow Dancer.  It's directed by James Marsh, who brought us Man on Wire and Project NIM.

I watched Jiro dreams of sushi. An Infomercial posing as documentary. Interesting concept. Ya Jiro got his stuff together and all, but this should have been called 'Eat At Jiro's' or 'Jiro Dreams Of Money'.

It's a must see! I just loved every single second of it and especially me who loves Sushi, thought it was amazing. I got so work motivated when I was finished with it.

Clearly, I meant no disrespect toward Jiro the man or chef. He certainly deserves the reputation and success he has worked a lifetime for. I hope he continues to prosper and enjoys another 30 years. I have never seen the Salesman but will look it up.
