Academy Awards 2016: Five more films

Academy Awards 2016: Five more films

I admit it: at the Awards viewing parties I usually use the Feature Length Documentaries section as a chance to get up and stretch my legs, take a bathroom break, and snag an appetizer, because most of the time I haven’t seen any of the nominations. Not this year. This year I watched all of them.

What did I learn? What with two of the films discussing troubled musicians, one about the Mexican drug war, one about Ukrainian military opening fire on protestors, and one about an Indonesian man confronting his brother’s murderers, I learned that cheerful, upbeat documentaries aren’t Oscar Bait.

All kidding aside, there are some really good films up for the Award. Read on for some (very brief) (I promise) (well, mostly) rundowns of each; which one I liked best, and which one is likely to get the Award.
