    Review: Roger Ebert Documentary 'Life Itself' Is The Kind Of Movie He Would Have Loved|The Playlist

    James should be high-fived every day of his life for telling the real story of Roger Ebert—a writer, a former alcoholic, a showboat, a hero, a lover, a man who changed from an uncouth kind of a dick to one who was unfailingly witty and kind. Last but certainly not least, Roger Ebert was a movie lover, and this is the kind of movie he would have loved. [A]

    Review: Elderhood Documentary 'Alive Inside' Is Vital & Important | The Playlist

    Premiering at Sundance earlier in the year, where it nabbed the Audience Award, and now playing in theaters across the country, “Alive Inside” contains a tiny revolution within its message, and will likely end up being one of the most important documentaries of the year. [B+]

    Review: Award Winning Documentary 'The Kill Team' | The Playlist

    Parallels and sociological discussions could be prompted by "The Kill Team," which is both thorough and more of a conversation starter than capper. Today's generation of citizens and soldiers live in a world that seems bigger than ever before with the advance of the information age and the population growth worldwide. Death becomes something of an abstract concept: the weight and meaning is lost by those at a young age with no guidance, given a gun and just a little bit of adrenaline from being surrounded by peers. "The Kill Team" underlines how necessary and, sadly, insubstantial that it really is, when one soldier remarks that there was nothing "special" about the Kill Team themselves: they were just the ones that got caught.

    'Kids' Actor Hamilton Harris Making A Documentary About Harmony Korine's Film | The Playlist

    "After the movie happened, people who weren’t in it —but who were a part of the group— had gripes with this intrusion into our lives and people making money off it, while we’re still struggling, starving, and finding our way through life, alone. That’s not to say [the filmmakers] did us wrong on that, because those of us who were in the movie chose to be. But there was a lot of dysfunction both prior to and after the film's release—people going from being in this little subculture, dealing with these complex situations in a sleepless city, to being a part of this new pop culture, with all that dysfunction and trauma squared," he explained. "It’s still a very sensitive topic—there’s a lot of resentment. So this documentary is quite a responsibility on me, you know what I mean? I had to do a lot of reflecting on myself first to get to the point of even doing this interview, 20 years later."
