Media Montage Podcast 131: Documentary Films

This week Bruce and Larry take a look at a different kind of movie. 

Documentaries are non-fictional narratives on hundreds of topics from comics, to comedy to history to movies themselves.  They take a look at narrative bias and narrator ego, and how those affect documentary films.  They discuss favorite docs in the genre, and they talk about various sub-genres of documentaries.

When should a film maker insert themselves into their story? Should they ever?  What about sequels to successful docs? Larry finds one he doesn't care for? Will that documentary on the Roger Corman Fantastic Four movie ever come out? Find out the answers to those questions and more in Episode 131 of the Media Montage Podcast!
