ELECTION EVE DOCUMENTARIES November 1 starting at 7 on Sundance
Feeling unmotivated to vote? Sundance has prepared a slate of partisan political docs, including Unprecedented, a painful reminder of the 2000 election farrago; Uncovered, an investigation into the Iraq war farrago; and Unconstitutional, about the Patriot Act farrago. All this is capped by Bush's Brain, a critical portrait of Karl Rove.
GAY REPUBLICANS November 2 at 8 on Trio
This low-key doc traces the evolving views of five Log Cabin Republicans; some embrace Bush despite his attacks on gay marriage, while others find themselves increasingly conflicted.
Just when you thought you couldn't stand another series about repulsive ordinary people thrown together in a tacky mansion, along comes Drawn Together. This animated parody of shows like The Real World nails all the hallmarks (angsty confessionals, racial confrontations) and stereotypes: The slutty role is filled by a Betty Boopgone-wild character and the troublemaker is a real (well, cartoon) pig. I'm not sure how long Drawn Together can sustain this housemate humor, but it's better to burn out than end up on a Real World reunion show.
