40 Frederick Wiseman docs are now available to stream on Kanopy. The docs are usually $30-$40 on DVD and until now that has been the primary way of watching them. Kanopy has partnerships with many Universities and libraries and you may be able to watch them free that way.

His newest is a 3 hr and 20 min doc called Ex Libris: The New York Public Library. I missed it at the theater, but as a fan of NYC, libraries and the work of Mr. Wiseman, I am very much looking forward to it. Ex Libris will hit Kanopy later this year after airing on PBS. I'm probably about to pony up $40 plus shipping because I want to see it before touring the library in May.

Last night I saw Nintendo Quest on Amazon Prime. It's not a great doc by any means (mediocre at best) but I still enjoyed it for what it was. If you grew up in the late 80's / early 90's you'll probably get some warm fuzzy's out of it.

I somehow missed Beware of Mr Baker back in 2012, and it’s pretty damn good if you like learning about the lives of drymounted up druggie rockstars, which I find fascinating.

Watched 'The Iconoclast' about art smuggler Michel Van Rijn on a plane over the weekend. Quick watch and fairly interesting portrait of the guy whether you believe some of his claims or not.

If it hasn't already been mentioned, watch Senna. It is about the life and tragic early death of the world's greatest ever Formula 1 race car driver.

It is extremely interesting and emotional - even if you aren't into Motorsports.

I have recommended it hundreds of times and it never disappoints. Check it out.

Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view

Senna is amazing. I don't know much about F1 racing but was engaged the entire time.

My recommendation is Love Means Zero. Debuted on Showtime last Saturday. It's made by the guy who directed one of my favorite docs ever, Manda Bala. If you have little interest in sports or are allergic to tennis then stay away.
