    Which Documentary Should Get a Sequel?

    As I noted in my latest Doc Talk column at Movies.com, we will have seen at least seven documentary sequels bow in 2011 (see the titles profiled in my column). That's still well short of the record number of fiction follow-ups we're experiencing this year, but it still seems nonfiction ...

    Robert Greene's new vérité wrestling film, "Fake It So Real," kind of has a catchphrase, which is fascinating because I can't recall the last documentary I saw that has one.
