    Cartel Land. Most documentaries are talking heads. This one brought you right into subject it was investigating – drug cartels.

    The correct answer is “Hoop Dreams.”

    If I had to pick one, it would be the Maysles Brothers’ SALESMAN. A clear-eyed depiction of the intersection of religion and commerce and the way they both can betray the American Dream. Incredible.

    Vertov’s MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA comes in a close second, though it is as much experimental filmmaking as it is documentary.

    Best documentary you’ve probably never heard of: Frederick Wiseman’s stunning BELFAST, MAINE

    My answers are boring. F for Fake would be my favorite, one of the most engaging and intriguing documentaries I’ve ever seen—if you can call it a documentary. If you can’t, Hoop Dreams and The Last Waltz would take the top spot.
