Like Stalker, Tarkovsky's The Mirror is somewhat mystifying. With an even more glacial pace, it explores childhood, love and divorce in extremely personal terms. It was difficult for me to watch for various reasons, and I know I'll have to come back to it someday to truly understand or appreciate it. If nothing else, this Russian knows how to photograph wind and fire.
2009. USA. Directed by Stephanie Schoetig and Jason Lindsey. Watchdate: 11/16/2010.
A notch or two above the standard current issue based documentary, including Who Killed the Electric Car? which is by the same producers I believe. Nothing groundbreaking, but it's a worthwhile exploration of a really sleazy industry that doesn't seem to get the awful reputation it deserves. It basically shows how everything about bottled water is really stupid and many things about it are down right dangerous. Don't buy bottled water (except for really specific reasons like emergency preparedness). Tap water is in almost every case superior, even if you don't count it being like 10,000 times cheaper.
