Three feature length documentaries are opening in theaters around the nation this week. Keep your eyes peeled for:
- America the Beautiful II: The Thin Commandments - In this sequel to 2007's America The Beautiful, filmmaker Darryl Roberts investigates America's obsession with being thin by putting himself on various weight loss regimes. His down to earth approach is downright inspiring. No gimmicks. Just the goods. Opens on October 12.
- Bombay Beach - Alma Har'el's lyrical and haunting documenary focuses on several outcasts who reside in a remote and rundown community on the shores of California's land-locked Salton Sea, and dance to the music of Bob Dylan and Beirut. Compelling characters and gorgeous cinematography. Opens October 14. Read my full review
