Last night Mary and I saw Waste Land, one of the Academy Award nominees for Best Feature Documentary. It was the first of multiple free screenings of the nominees at the Nat'l Archives and it was so wonderful. I actually didn't know the complete synopsis of the film going into the screening and was glad I didn't because it was surprisingly and refreshingly uplifting. Highly recommended. If only these were the types of films that were regarded as blockbusters...the world would be a more thoughtful and informed place.
