This is an excellently made documentary. Just, very very solid. Tells a cohesive story entirely through multiple interviews stitched together, and cohesive mini-stories within each of the 4 episodes. It’s the kind of thing that used to be an Event and my family would sit down and watch it every week on PBS. Intelligent, clear, informative, and fully fully factchecked and researched.Continue reading

DDLJ Analysis Announcement: You Give Me the Pictures, I’ll Finish It!
Just got another comment asking when I was gonna finish that. And really, the hardest part is getting the dang images. I start with about 1 image for every 5 seconds of film time, then cull it down to the best ones to talk about and do the analysis. But pulling and saving and storing 1 image for 5 seconds of film time is really really tedious and time consuming! The analysis is a piece of cake in comparison.Continue reading
