Cinema Eye Honors

There’s little parity between this year’s Cinema Eye nominations and the recently announced IDA noms. This kind of discrepancy is typical in the documentary world for many reasons, mostly diversity of opinions amongst groups, but also eligibility requirements and release dates. Only Searching for Sugar Man emerges in both groups’ listings, giving that film an inevitable, if somewhat unexpected, boost. It’s interesting to see both West of Memphis and The Central Park Five left out of every category. One has to wonder if we are putting too much stock in the name-brand attention of these films (non-fiction doesn’t usually work like that).  It’s very nice to see Detropia (my current pick to win the Oscar) pick up numerous honors. I have a feeling this one will have the legs to get more recognition – and maybe a legitimate release – down the line.
