DVD Gurus: Favorite Documentary Picks

Jason Heck and Mitch Brian share their list of outstanding documentaries available on DVD with Up to Date host Steve Kraske. Kansas City, MO –


Documentary films give viewers an in-depth glimpse into subjects oftentimes glossed over in short articles or missed completely.

Documentaries in recent years have transitioned from talking-heads to a more "movie-like" quality featuring plot lines. New technologies allow non-filmmakers to try their hand at telling stories. And they're attracting new audiences, too.

Jason's Picks:
Harlan County USA
Deep Water
The Bridge

Mitch's Picks:
Stanley Kubrick's Boxes
