    Critical Consensus: "Page One" Narrowly Tops "Buck" In Strong Weekend For New Docs

    For the second time in the three month history of this weekly column, a documentary has topped criticWIRE as the pick of the week (though the first incidence, Clio Barnard's "The Arbor," blurred the lines between documentary and narrative filmmaking). More over, it was actually a very tight race between two documentaries Andrew Rossi's "Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times," and Cindy Meehl's "Buck." Both premieres at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, the former works as a fly inside the walls of The New York Times, while the latter takes on a living legend in the horse world, Buck Brannaman, who was the inspiration for "The Horse Whispe...

    REVIEW | Buck Brannaman, Horse Therapist, in "Buck"

    Buck Brannaman, the subject of Cindy Meehl's engaging documentary profile "Buck," has a warm presence and knows how to tame horses better than anyone else. That's the simplest encapsulation of the movie's thesis, although the subtext runs much deeper than that. Beaten by his demanding father as a ch...

    SIFF REVIEW: "Holy Rollers" Follows Christian Card Sharks

    There's a fascinating paradox at the heart of "Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians," and it's right there in the title. In Bryan Storkel's new documentary about the Seattle-based "Church Team" of blackjack players, which premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival this past weekend, players work the system with cunning skill and rake in the dough. At the same time, they make bold claims about the purity of their work and rebuff assumptions that it runs counter to their religion. Storkel makes as little effort to resolve the issue as the players do, giving "Holy Rollers" an intriguingly ambiguous outlook. Whether...

    SIFF REVIEW | A Bromance With Old People: Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats"

    In the first few minutes of Taylor Guterson's "Old Goats," writer-director Taylor Guterson's debut feature has the appearance of a documentary, mainly because the matching of the scenario and the tone are so unfamiliar in narrative cinema. With an upbeat soundtrack to set the mood, Guterson shows an elderly man discussing his sailing plans to a roomful to peers. Another man only slightly younger begins the narrate the story. The vibe is light and playful. Here's the disconnect: Scripted American movies usually require young faces to please the requisite financiers. "Old Goats" has none of those faces, but it still adopts the familiar mold of ...
