Top Ten Documentaries Not Usually Seen In Top Ten Lists

Every blogger who’s watched eleven movies in one lifetime has put togther a Top Ten films list. I’ve read half of those. Within each catagory are features well-known and well-worn. Embittered clashes have arisen over each list and its inclusions and/or exclusions to rival the Caputlets and Montagues, Hatfields and McCoys, Sunnis and Shia, and even the Yankees and the Red Sox. But this list is different. I’ve dedicated this series to those films that rarely, if ever, show up on the select litanies so often found in the blog-o-spere. With that may I humbly introduce for your perusal: The Top Ten Films That Don’t Usually Make Top Ten Lists. These are gems often overlooked, neglected, and ignored… due to no other fault than not being as good as the Top Ten…
Documentaries:
Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, Thin Blue Line, My Best Friend, Harlan County USA, Titticut Follies, A Great Day In Harlem, Crumb, Nanook Of The North, In The Year Of The Pig, Shoah.
