Errol Morris Must: SundanceNow Doc Club Launches Thom Powers’ The Essentials
The SundanceNow Doc Club have given themselves a reboot and are inviting docu film lovers to renew their passion for the doc form and essentially, get acclimatized with a new site and awesome curated list of docu items. To kick off the new look and improved service, curator Thom Powers (programmer at TIFF, DOC NYC) put together a program called THE ESSENTIALS.
This month the list of seven includes Stop Making Sense, Sherman’s March, Let’s Get Lost, Atomic Cafe, Brother’s Keeper, Hoop Dreams, and the seminal film in my own personal appreciation for the form (I was 14 when I caught the theatrical release of this) in Errol Morris’ 1988 game-changing groundbreakingly innovative The Thin Blue Line. Here’s an exclusive clip on Powers discussing the above mentioned titles — if you’re salivating to discover or rediscover these essentials – then head on over to the Doc Club.
