We all knew Leonardo DiCaprio‘s The 11th Hour wouldn’t make the short list of Best Documentary Feature contenders (which have previously numbered 15), but the Academy committee has also given the boot to Seth Gordon‘s The King of Kong. Donkey Kong guy…out! People loved your film, we didn’t relate, life is hard, tough darts.
Charles Ferguson‘s No End in Sight. Michael Moore‘s Sicko and Tony Kaye‘s Lake of Fire made it though — good calls. Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro‘s Body of War, Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman‘s Nanking, Alex Gibney‘s Taxi to the Dark Side, Richard Robbins‘ Operation Homecoming and Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine‘s War/Dance.
That’s nine, leaving room for six more. Crazy Love should be on the list along with The Devil Came on Horseback, In The Shadow Of The Moon, Jimmy Carter: Man from Plains, My Kid Could Paint That, The Price of Sugar and Barbet Schroeder‘s Terror’s Advocate.
