I just want to say, I love your blog, especially the recent posts on docs! I’ve been on such a documentary run as of late, and have been looking for recommendations. I just NEARLY picked up Hearts and Mind today but opted for something a little lighter (I got a doc on Bettie Page). I would love to see The World According to Sesame Street, never heard of it. Have you by any chance seen Shoah? I’m SLOWLY working my way through it, it’s heavy stuff, not to mention very long.

Merci, vous êtes très gentil. Oui, les documentaires politiques sont très lourds. Vu Shoah? Mais noah! Je noterai votre recommandation, merci. Uh oh: neuf heures, mon dieu!
