Less than two weeks left until the Academy Awards, and we're all playing catch up with the nominees. Somehow I've still not seen all of the Best Picture contenders, but I have now watched all of the films competing for the Oscars for Best Documentary (Feature) and Best Documentary (Short Subject).
If you're behind, you can currently see the nominees in the latter category courtesy of iTunes or select cinemas like NYC's IFC Center. As for the features, AMC Theatres is again running a feature documentary nominee showcase this year, on February 20th (however, only in NYC and L.A.). If you can't make that, 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' and 'Restrepo' are easily viewable on Netflix Watch Instantly (among other formats) and 'Gasland' is also on DVD.
Unfortunately, 'Waste Land' and 'Inside Job' won't be out for home viewing until next month (March 15 and 8, respectively). Too bad, since I consider them the frontrunners for the Academy Award. Find out which title I'd rather win, though, and also see my reviews of the documentary shorts after the jump.
