Rounding the year off, these are my top 4 films of 2019.
The fallen star remains spectrally elusive despite Macdonald’s probing, solemn approach.
Covering the resistant civilian correspondence coming out of ISIS-held Raqqa, Heineman’s documentary is a haunting, personal account of those risking their lives to report.
True to form, Pilger’s 60th documentary film uncovers a potentially deadly global conflict and gives voice to those already resisting the latest expansion of US military power.
Sibert, Wagner and director-subject Sidibe’s intimate documentary affords a rare, humanising perspective into the hopes, fears and resilience of those attempting to scale the outer walls of fortress Europe.
