This week’s recommended documentaries to watch at home include old favorites by Lars von Trier, Werner Herzog and Banksy, a recent effort by Alex Gibney and a new doc just out on DVD, ‘The Trials of Muhammad Ali.’
It’s the easiest way to get the best documentary news, reviews and editorials from the hardest working staff of doc lovers on the web.
The latest from two-time Oscar nominee Marshall Curry (‘Streetfight’; ‘If a Tree Falls’) is a breathless, expertly woven compilation of the almost unbelievable life of American adventurer and Libyan revolutionary Matthew VanDyke.
In this week’s episode, Daniel and Christopher are joined by Kristy Puchko (Cinema Blend; PopCrush) to discuss Lotfy Nathan’s ’12 O’Clock Boys,’ which is one of the most critically acclaimed and honored docs of 2014 so far. Somehow the three of us are united in not thinking it’s such a great film, though it is definitely one with a lot to discuss.
