This week’s recommended alternative to a new theatrical release is a shocking documentary never before released in America. Directed by Sheldon Renan and Oscar nominee Leonard Schrader, ‘The Killing of America’ is easily found online to watch instead of the ‘Sin City’ sequel, but obviously it’s very much NSFW. Maybe NSFH as well.
There are a few former Oscar nominees now up for Emmy Awards in news and documentary categories. Other favorites among those recognized include ‘The Imposter,’ ‘Special Flight’ and ‘Planet Money Makes a T-Shirt.’
This adventure documentary directed by Daniel Dencik (an editor on ‘The Five Obstructions’ and ‘Into Eternity’) follows art and science to the brink, sailing boldly north to a melting Greenland with a mission of discovery.
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.
