Movie: Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah
This short, about the making of Shoah, was interesting and well-made but felt more like bonus content that should go with Shoah itself - or, to stand on its own, a more thorough introduction to the movie was needed. Also, the people at the beginning talking about how terrible Lanzmann was were intriguing, and then that whole thread was pretty much just dropped. But this did make me interested in seeing Shoah itself.

Documentary (Short Subject): Nah. Just didn't think it held up well enough on its own, especially given the much stronger nominees in this category.
