Documentary Feature 2000

Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport.

PRO: Holocaust movies pretty much own this category.

CON: Haven't we seen this fictionalized already? Au revoir, freshness . . .


PRO: Courageous story; family hamstrung by generations in a housing project struggles to find a way out.

CON: Film stars neither Richard Dreyfus nor Meryl Streep.

Long Night's Journey Into Day

PRO: Second nomination for both filmmakers; coolness of film made partly in Xhosa; race relations in South Africa trump race relations in the U.S.

CON: Hollywood has learned the hard way not to be big on commissions with Orwellian-sounding names.

Scottsboro: An American Tragedy

PRO: Fitness of story to form; "the unjust trial" is pretty much a movie-making staple.

CON: Story contains endless backing-and-forthing; possible discomfort with the whole "Jew money from New York" angle.

Sound and Fury

PRO:Miracle surgery always a good Hollywood movie topic.

CON: Relatively light subject matter for category; signifies nothing.
