Salinger: Here is a list of documentaries I've seen theatrically in the past two years: Comic Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope; Katy Perry: Part of Me. If we go back to 2010, that includes Waking Sleeping Beauty and Best Worst Movie, documentaries about non-documentary movies; Babies, that movie about babies; and Catfish, the movie that inspired the show that I've watched far more often than any real documentaries from the past three or four years. If you haven't passed out or vomited in anger yet, perhaps you, too, don't care about documentaries, and perhaps you, too, will feel utter guilt if you go see Salinger, of all things, which I do want to see and which does look suspiciously like Harvey Weinstein in carnie-barker mode, hawking non-revelations just ahead of their dissemination in the press to make a quick buck. God help me if Weinstein ever produces a documentary about Rilo Kiley, Kurt Vonnegut, or Saturday Night Live.
