Documentary Now!

Excellent news today; IFC’s Documentary Now! got renewed for season three! If you are unfamiliar, DN! is Bill Hader and Fred Armisen’s straight-up yet hilarious sendup of various famous documentaries. Who knew there were so many famous documentaries (okay, I didn’t), but you’ve gotta love their approach to the Clinton-era The War Room (“The Bunker”), Robert Evans’ The Kid Stays In the Picture (“Mr. Runner-Up: My Life As An Oscar Bridesmaid”), and my favorite, their version of the famous Eagles documentary, called Gentle And Soft: The Story Of The Blue Jean Committee. You have plenty of time to catch up before season three starts in 2019. [Gwen Ihnat]

Greta Gerwig dancing

Fell in love with Greta Gerwig in Frances Ha, loved Lady Bird like the rest of the country, but for my money her greatest contribution to American art is her dancing to Arcade Fire’s “Afterlife” with Spike Jonze directing. [Kevin Pang]
