“The Director of ‘Bisbee ’17’ on Making the Year’s Most Daring, Revelatory Documentary”

I like a good, standardized talking head doc that’s lean, simple, but knows how to tell a nonfiction story through primary sources and such as that. But I like creative, nonstandard docs that feel more like art than journalism, and that’d be Robert Greene‘s Bisbee ’17, which you may recall I wrote about last month. 

Bisbee ’17 is a brilliant, complex piece of work, and it’s the kind of thing I expect from Greene based on Actress and Kate Plays Christine; it’s the kind of doc I wish more people would try to make, a’la Joshua Oppenheimer‘s The Act of Killing and The Look of Silence, which I refrained from dropping into the conversation when I chatted with Green via phone back in September. We had a great talk, which is what I say about all talks I have with people, but really, this is a talk for the record books. (The Crump record books.)

You can read the full interview over at Thrillist.
