Documentary Movies of 2022
2022 Oscar Documentary Movies
2022 Documentary Movies – An Overview of this year’s five documentaries and a suggestion of three from last year.
(3.5*) Ascension is, on the surface, a study of China’s economy. But it also turns a mirror on our own!
Attica (4*) – Disturbing presentation of the four days of the deadliest prison riot in US history. It probes not only the riot, but also fundamentals of racism. This isn’t fun, but is perhaps necessary.
FLEE (4*) A very unique story told in an unusual way.
Summer of Soul
(4.5*) Summer of Soul is exhilarating, fun, and informative. Definitely take this stroll through Black music of the late 60s!
Writing with Fire
(3.5*) Writing with Fire is a profile in courage, telling the story of untouchable women changing Indian society. A case where the subject matter overwhelms the filmmaking.
