Documentaries short and long
December 26, 2010 10:27 AM   Subscribe

Cinelan 3 Minute Stories are short documentaries on diverse subjects, such as The London Review of Books personals section, 60s martial arts legend and self-styled 'deadliest man alive' Count Dante and The R.O.M.E.O.s, a group of five old friends from New York in their 70s and 80s who go out to eat and talk about stuff. If you have more time New Video Digital has some full length documentaries (and a few other films) such as The Atomic Cafe, Oscar winner From Mao to Mozart, and season one of Michael Moore's The Awful Truth TV series.

This is a great diversion, as we're visiting Jess's dad for the holidays, and the snowstorm has knocked his satellite TV out. Better than a great diversion; I'll be watching a lot more of these even after I go home, I'm sure.

This is fantasti─Źna! I never got to see 'The Aweful Truth' and some other she's on here! Thank you!

I haven't watched The Atomic Cafe in quite a while! It's a good one, but definitely contributed to my still-present delightful habit of waking up panicking whenever a low flying plane passes.
