RIP D.A Pennebaker, great documentary filmmaker

He made it to 94, a long life and a seminal career. From the shape of docs to “reality TV,” it all harks back to cinema veritae, which Pennebaker perfected half a century ago.

“The War Room” and “Don’t Look Back” are (with partner Chris Hegedus) his big statement pictures, but there were others.

From THR “At a ‘Don’t Look Back’ screening, Dylan told him he would “write down all of the things we have to change” on a yellow pad. “At the end of the film, he held up the pad and there was nothing on it. He said, ‘That’s it.’” https://t.co/2bYE15alLj https://twitter.com/MikeBarnes4/status/1157762183712739329?s=17
