Sins of My Father is a documentary about reconciliation between the son of Pablo Escobar and the sons of slain Colombian politicians, Lara and Galán. It's interesting for historical reasons, but the film focuses more intently on the lives of the sons and their eventual meeting. These types of documentaries are often overly sentimental, but this one did provoke thought on how an individual, family, and society can get past hatred and violence by making the right choice at crucial times.
Exit Through the Gift Shop (2010) Amateur filmmaker Thierry Guetta's project to chronicle the underground world of street art takes a fascinating twist when he meets Banksy, an elusive British stencil artist, in this Independent Spirit Award winner for Best Documentary. Unimpressed with Guetta's footage, Banksy takes over filmmaking duties while Guetta reinvents himself as a street artist and -- much to Banksy's surprise -- instantly becomes a darling of the Los Angeles art scene.
