Excellent.  I'm curious as to by how wide a margin Grizzly Man won.
Please don't correct me. It makes me sick.

We wanted to show how much smarter we are than the academy.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Timothy Treadwell > Bob Dylan

Obviously.
"A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later." --Stanley Kubrick

I saw the Bob doc..even with scorsese at the helm the film just didn't get to me like G-man did.

I really liked No Direction Home, but it really failed to stick the landing.  The ending was so abrupt and so... well, I wouldn't even call it an ending.  No sleight to Dylan as an artist, but Scorsese could have done much better with the conclusion.  It seemed like he ran out of time.
Please don't correct me. It makes me sick.

Grizzly Man, Easily the best documentary of the five...Oddly enough I actually watched all of them, and I thought Enron, was better than  The Dylan Doc...Something just didn't settle right with me during it...But, don't get me wrong i am a Dylan fan...Just seemed rushy or something...Who knows...
