A while back, blog buddy and recent marathon runner (!), Jason Bellamy, asked if I'd like to participate in an e-mail volley about documentaries. I told him "absolutely", but only on the condition that the work was pro bono. I just wouldn't feel right getting paid to blabber on about my view that documentaries equal "lazy cinema". (It took some arm twisting, but Jason finally ripped that $10,000 check in half).
So... did that "lazy cinema" label get your blood boiling???? GOOD! Because what I'm trying to do here is get you to click over to Jason's excellent blog The Cooler and get involved in the discussion.
But first... be sure to read the transcript that Jason's posted of our excited and geeky back-and-forth. Yes, it's rather long, but it's the weekend, and most of you are too old to go trick or treatin', so put on your favorite Halloween mask and come join us for some old people couch n' laptop fun (no, not that kind...).
Plus, the discussion is a perfect lead-in to next Tuesday's (that's November 4th!) highly-anticipated, much debated, and controversial episode of 90210.
P.S. Don't forget to participate in the Politics & Movies Blog-A-Thon that Jason is hosting from Nov. 4th - 9th.
