Worth Watching - Nov 14: Chicago 10 Documentary Trailer
This was last year's (as in January of 2007) Sundance premiere film that kicked off the festival. It was the very first film I saw at Sundance and still remains with me as something very unique and interesting, although not perfect. Chicago 10 is a documentary with some flair. The trials of the 8 "head" protesters from the 1968 Democratic National Convention weren't taped, so the filmmakers used CGI Scanner Darkly-like scenes to show what happened. I didn't feel this was effective and it felt more out-of-place, but the documentary had quite a bit more intensity and excitement than normal docs, especially considering I'm bored by most. This may be one you end up seeing even if you don't like documentaries, so check it out.

Chicago 10 was written and directed by Brett Morgen, who previously directed a few other documentaries including On the Ropes and The Kid Stays in the Picture. The film finally hits limited theaters starting next February, 2008. The poster for the film is featured below.
