3. The Stranger (Orson Welles, 1946) MGM. Suave Connecticut noir with Welles as a Nazi war criminal in hiding and Edward G. Robinson as the G-man on his trail.
4. Iraq in Fragments (James Longley, 2006). Typecast Releasing. Acclaimed Iraq doc comes home, supplemented by Saris Mother, a self-contained outtake that rivals the feature for intensity of vision. 5. Police Beat (Robinson Devor, 2005) Homevision. This inventive, episodic indie about a Senegalese immigrant employed as a Seattle bike cop suggested interesting things to come from Devor, who proceeded to make an avant-garde docudrama about a man fucked to death by a horse.
