If documentaries want to be treated like movies, they need to behave like them

Scott Tobias:

<blockquote>        <p>The thinking that documentaries need merely to seek or present some kind of truth, regardless of how those truths are presented, strikes me as dated at a time when the elasticity of the format is constantly being tested. Why should documentaries be forgiven any more than fiction films for failing to use the medium expressively or dynamically? </p>    </blockquote>
