I learned a lot about how to watch documentaries from this book on how to make them: http://www.amazon.com/Making-Documentary-Films-Reality-Videos/dp/0805044515/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3/103-4857603-3319062?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183396986&sr=8-3

This is a terrific book with twenty different (very different!) directors talking about their first movies, with the exception of Oliver Stone who wanted to pretend that his third movie was his first movie, lol http://www.amazon.com/My-First-Movie-Celebrated-Directors/dp/0142002208/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-4857603-3319062?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1183397043&sr=1-1

damnation, I'll have to get back to you on the third one. I can't quite remember the name of the book or the writer. It'll come to me.


It is painful in the extreme to live with questions rather than with answers, but that is the only honorable intellectual course. (c) Norman Mailer
