Note: -What is a documentary? The line between what is and isn't a documentary is too fuzzy to be used as a blanket rule, so instead it's up to you to decide what qualifies. If you feel My Winnipeg is a doc, go ahead and vote for it. If you feel it isn't a doc, but still love it... well, it's up to you what you do. There's always the Best Film category. But anyways, we're not going to tell you who you can and can't vote for in this category. Unless, of course, you're just being silly.

I don't think it belongs here, but it's cool if others do.

I need to watch this bad.  Damn you netflix instant play and college library for conspiring against me.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

I'd look for any of this director's student films at whatever college he went to.  :P
