DOCUMENTARY NOW! REVIEWED

“Documentary Now” scratches so many itches for me. Plus, it’s a show with Fred Armisen that I can actually stomach. What is happening? Co-developed with Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas, the show is meant to be a parody of the free-flowing nature of the American documentary. Lovingly joking on Grey Gardens, Nanook and Stop Making Sense to the point of almost being fan films, Documentary Now has a very narrow audience. But, that audience is in love with what they are doing.The fact that the show got two seasons on IFC is staggering. Hell, I’m still shocked that I have a physical media copy in my hands. In a world that keeps trying to get more mainstream by minimizing the oddballs, the show survives. I don’t expect teens and other kids to seek this show out. But, even young film fans will find what is going on here in time. This show stinks of buried treasure and something a lazy writer later discovers as a lost treasure.Not all treasures are lost, people. Get off your ass and start supporting things when they are new. You can do it.
